Slutwalk Frankfurt 2011

Location

Germany
  • No matter who I am and what I wear: No means No
  • Against sexism and a violent normal state
  • For self-determination of body, sexuality and way of living

After a Canadian policemen’s advice for women* to “not dress like sluts”, in order to not be sexually assaulted, people, at first in Toronto, later in other cities decided to form SlutWalks.

SlutWalks protest against “victim-blaming”, a strategy of argumentation, which blames the person affected of sexual violence for the wrong that was done to her. SlutWalk is directed against heterosexism, rape myths and - downplaying.

What began in Toronto earlier this year is growing into a global emancipation movement. SlutWalks are marches and demonstrations against sexism, sexualized violence, rape culture, and belittlement of rape. Worldwide people take to the streets, supporting their right of self-determination in terms of body, gender, sexuality, and desire - no matter if this involves personal relationships or jobs where sex is part of the everyday work.

Marcha de las Putas Rosario 2011

Location

La "Marcha de las Putas" está inspirada en una manifestación en Canadá en repudio a un policía que dijo: "Las mujeres deberían dejar de vestirse como putas para evitar violaciones". Distintas manifestaciones del estilo se llevaron a cabo en ciudades como Melbourne, Brisbane, Saskatoon, Montreal, Los Ángeles, Seattle, Filadelfia, Londres y Nueva Delhi, entre muchas otras. AHORA LE TOCA A ROSARIO!
Marchamos porque sin importar la vestimenta, la edad o el lugar: NO, significa NO, y nada justifica la violencia o el acoso sexual.

NO, SIGNIFICA NO.

Marcha de las putas Mar del Plata 2011

Location

Mar del Plata
Argentina

Marchamos para que se respete nuestro derecho a VIVIR sin ser agredidas por nuestra raza, oficio, creencias, edad, forma de vestir o aspecto físico. Marchamos porque NO es NO.

¿Porque llamarle marcha de las putas? Porque no queremos que ésta palabra siga siendo el pretexto y justificación de la violencia sexual que vivimos las mujeres; queremos quitarle la fuerza, la ofensa, la carga social negativa que tiene la palabra para que no nos de vergüenza asumirnos putas y así podamos exigir nuestro derecho a la libertad. LA PALABRA PUTA YA NO NOS OFENDE!!
NO, SIGNIFICA NO.

Los orígenes

La Marcha de las Putas, o Slutwalk en su versión internacional, surgió en Toronto, Canadá, en respuesta a los dichos de un policía, Michel Sanguinetti, quien en una charla sobre seguridad declaró que “las mujeres deben evitar vestirse como putas para no ser violadas”. En el auditorio se encontraban quienes, sin saberlo, darían inicio a un movimiento mundial.

Location

Mumbai

The SlutWalk protest marches began on April 3, 2011, in Toronto, Canada, and became a movement of rallies across the world.[1] Participants protest against explaining or excusing rape by referring to any aspect of a woman's appearance. The rallies began when Constable Michael Sanguinetti, a Toronto Police officer, suggested that to remain safe, "women should avoid dressing like sluts." The protest takes the form of a march, mainly by young women, where some dress in ordinary clothing and others dress provocatively, like "sluts." There are also speaker meetings and workshops.
