Women, men, girls and boys marched from the African American Civil War Memorial to Malcolm X Park for the 2013 DC edition of SlutWalk.
On January 24th, 2011, a representative of the Toronto Police gave shocking insight into the Force’s view of sexual assault by stating: “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”. A tremendous outcry followed this statement leading to the first SlutWalk taking place in Toronto on April 3rd, 2011. Immediately, Toronto’s sentiment spread throughout the world, with women, men, and children taking to the streets to demand their right to live without fear of sexual violence based on their life choices; clothing, work, lifestyle choices, etc.
The SlutWalk DC demands are listed on the organizations site. Scroll down for some potentially NSFW photos from SlutWalk DC 2013.
