Slutwalk Greensboro 2011


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!

We want to make it very clear that this is not a gender specific event nor is it only for those who dress provocatively. Come as you are; harassment and victim blaming happen no matter what gender you identify with or what you wear. We also don't want you to feel like you have to claim the word "slut" for yourself -- we just want you to be in support of victim's rights and the idea that those who have experienced sexual assault are NEVER at fault!
