SlutWalk Singapore 2012 Main Event!

We are proudly taking a stand against sexual violence and the bully tactics of victim-blaming, as we are tired of being oppressed by slut-shaming; of being judged by our sexuality and feeling unsafe as a result. We recognize that we need to end not only the acts of sexual violence, but the excuses that allow that violence to continue. This is not just a women’s issue or a men’s issue; it is everyone’s issue — regardless of gender identification, class, religion, race, or any other identity markers.

Besharmi Morcha Bengalore 2011

Location

Bangalore
India

A walk of solidarity against the practice of victim blaming in cases of sexual assault. On countless occasions, we've been accused of "asking for it" with our dressing, mannerisms, lifestyle, etc...

How long before society and the authorities realize it's time to start blaming the offender, NOT the victim!?!

We've had enough. And on December 4th, we march together to start the process of change.

Marcha de las Putas Lima 2011

Location

Lima
Peru

La "Marcha de las Putas" es un movimiento que surge en Canadá en abril de este año, a raíz de las declaraciones que diera el policía Michael Sanguinetti, durante una conferencia sobre seguridad civil en Osgoode Hall Law School en Toronto, donde aseguró que “las mujeres deben evitar vestirse como “putas” para no ser víctimas de la violencia sexual”. The "Slutwalk" (como se denominó la primera marcha) es una denuncia pública en contra de todas las formas de violencia hacia las mujeres y de la estructura social e institucional que la reproduce y la justifica.

Slutwalk Perth 2011

Location

Perth
Australia

History:
On January 24th, 2011, a representative of the Toronto Police gave shocking insight into a widely held view of sexual assault by stating: “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”.
As a result of this, SlutWalk groups have formed all over the world to highlight police response to sexual assault; and the attitudes that continue to leave sexual crimes under-reported due to victim-blaming. As the city’s major protective service, the Toronto Police perpetuated the myth and stereotype of ‘the slut’, and in doing so have failed women everywhere.

MANIFIESTO DE LA MARCHA DE LAS PUTAS - PANAMA / 25 OCTUBRE 2011

Somos un grupo de personas indignadas con el irrespeto y abuso del cual las mujeres somos víctimas, una violencia que se ha querido naturalizar, pero no es natural que a una mujer se le viole o agreda por su forma de vestir NO PUEDE SER NATURAL. ¿Qué justifica la violación de niñas, monjas y mujeres con burkas? ¿Acaso su sensualidad provocadora es lo que las hace víctimas?
