SlutWalk Toronto 2011

Location

Toronto, ON
Canada

SlutWalk began in Toronto in February of 2011. It began because a few people had had ENOUGH of victim-blaming, of slut-shaming and sexual profiling and policing. We had enough of being angry, of facing violence and harassment, of wanting better education, awareness and treatment and not seeing more about it. Our protective services in Toronto, among many people, had put the responsibility of sexual assault where it didn’t belong and were continuing to spread myths and stereotypes about who is sexually assaulted and why, and this was nothing new – it was in a long line of violence, ingrained into institutions and our culture.

SlutWalk Toronto brought together thousands of people across gender, sex, race, age, ability, class, education, profession, experience, background and interest to fight these damaging ideas.

Don't Hide Behind Your Skirt

Location

Los Angeles
United States

Don't Hide Behind Your Skirt is Aurora Lady's answer to S.E. Hinton's masterpiece, "The Outsiders". The half-size tome discusses abuse, grief, and the eternal search for a girl gang.

An excerpt:
"I wanted women around me that I could trust with everything. I wanted girls I could call at a moment’s notice and say, “let’s tear this down and build something up”, and they wouldn’t question. They’d be there, just as angry and full of venom as I was. My eyes were searching, wanting to close in."

"Don't Hide Behind Your Skirt" is the first release from Fair Dig Press.
