BECAUSE WE’VE HAD ENOUGH!

Slutwalk Milwaukee 2011

Location

Milwaukee
United States

For too long our society has preached, "Don't get raped," instead of "Don't rape." We have focused on the ways in which victims of sexual assault have "deserved" their assault. We have used words like “slut,” to dehumanize, delegitimize and isolate women, shaping a cultural conception that only women like “them” get sexually assaulted, and didn’t they earn it anyway? Slut, and words like it, have too long blamed women for their sexual assault, and ignored that fact that men are sexually victimized as well.

Slutwalk Frankfurt 2011

Location

Frankfurt
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.

Slutwalk Berlin 2011

Location

WittenbergplatzBerlin
Germany

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

Rosario
Argentina

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.
