SlutWalk NYC: October 1st 2011

SlutWalk NYC – Rally and March
Saturday, October 1st
Noon
Union Square

Toronto police officer Michael Sanguinetti had no idea he would spark an international wave of protests when he told students at York University that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order to not be victimized.” But his words tapped into a widespread sense of outrage at the way survivors of sexual assault are mistreated when they come forward with their stories. Be a part of this protest against sexual violence and victim blaming known as SlutWalk because ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

  • No matter who you are
  • No matter where you work
  • No matter how you identify
  • No matter how you flirt
  • No matter what you wear
  • No matter who you choose to love

No matter what you said before:

NO ONE has the right to touch you without your consent. SlutWalk NYC is part of a worldwide grassroots movement challenging rape culture, victim-blaming and slut-shaming*, and working to end sexual and domestic violence.

SlutWalk NYC’s working definition of slut-shaming: the derogatory, sexist language and policies that are used to shame self-identified women who are perceived as sexual.
