Los orígenes

La Marcha de las Putas, o Slutwalk en su versión internacional, surgió en Toronto, Canadá, en respuesta a los dichos de un policía, Michel Sanguinetti, quien en una charla sobre seguridad declaró que “las mujeres deben evitar vestirse como putas para no ser violadas”. En el auditorio se encontraban quienes, sin saberlo, darían inicio a un movimiento mundial.

The SlutWalk protest marches began on April 3, 2011, in Toronto, Canada, and became a movement of rallies across the world.[1] Participants protest against explaining or excusing rape by referring to any aspect of a woman's appearance. The rallies began when Constable Michael Sanguinetti, a Toronto Police officer, suggested that to remain safe, "women should avoid dressing like sluts." The protest takes the form of a march, mainly by young women, where some dress in ordinary clothing and others dress provocatively, like "sluts." There are also speaker meetings and workshops.

The Background...

"SlutWalk began in Toronto in February of 2011. It began because a few people had had ENOUGH of victim-blaming, of slut-shaming and sexual profiling. We had enough of being angry, wanting better education, awareness and treatment and not seeing more about it. ...Now, months later Satellite SlutWalks are happening across many different communities, different cities, different countries and with different people." These SlutWalks are founded by people in their own cities who feel the need to publicly challenge sexual violence.
