Slutwalk Perth 2011

Location

Perth
Australia

History:
On January 24th, 2011, a representative of the Toronto Police gave shocking insight into a widely held view of sexual assault by stating: “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”.
As a result of this, SlutWalk groups have formed all over the world to highlight police response to sexual assault; and the attitudes that continue to leave sexual crimes under-reported due to victim-blaming. As the city’s major protective service, the Toronto Police perpetuated the myth and stereotype of ‘the slut’, and in doing so have failed women everywhere.

MANIFIESTO DE LA MARCHA DE LAS PUTAS - PANAMA / 25 OCTUBRE 2011

Somos un grupo de personas indignadas con el irrespeto y abuso del cual las mujeres somos víctimas, una violencia que se ha querido naturalizar, pero no es natural que a una mujer se le viole o agreda por su forma de vestir NO PUEDE SER NATURAL. ¿Qué justifica la violación de niñas, monjas y mujeres con burkas? ¿Acaso su sensualidad provocadora es lo que las hace víctimas?

Ignited by the words of a Toronto police officer quoted as saying "Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order to not be victimized," SlutWalk has swept the world in an effort to combat victim-blaming and slut-shaming. We are tired of being judged by our sexuality and feeling unsafe as a result!

Marcha de las Putas La Paz 2011

Location

Plaza San FranciscoLa Paz
Bolivia

La Marcha de las Putas en La Paz es una denuncia pública en contra de todas las formas de violencia hacia las mujeres y de la estructura social e institucional que la reproduce y además la justifica.

Todas las mujeres en algún momento de nuestras vidas podemos ser calificadas de forma despectiva como “putas”, eres puta cuando vistes de determinada manera, eres puta cuando hablas de determinada manera, eres puta cuando te auto determinas, eres puta cuando no haces lo que la sociedad “quiere”.
