Becky thinks Slutwalk is "disgusting"


This letter was published in the North Eastern Tribune for the week ending 23 September 2011. This movement is certainly achieving one thing: sparking a debate!

If you are unfamiliar with Slutwalk, the following is from the Slutwalk JHB website:

We are here to unite behind the simple idea that there is never an excuse for rape. We are here to unite against the naming and shaming of victims. We are here to unite against the idea that a women can be blamed for rape if she was wearing a miniskirt.

Another way of expressing what Slutwalk is about is this slogan which I like:

Its a dress, not a yes

Join the march on Saturday, 24 September, if this strikes a chord with you. You can also make a donation towards the costs of running this event if you’d like to show your support that way.
