Slut Walk May 25, 2012, Toronto

 

SlutWalk Toronto began as a small idea in 2011 to fight back against victim-blaming and slut-shaming around sexual violence. We were galvanized into action and took our name from a Toronto Police officer who referred to women and survivors of sexual assault as "sluts" and suggested women 'dressing like sluts' were inviting their own victimization.

The prevalence of this attitude in our culture at large drew many to this cause to end blaming victims of sexual violence, and judging peoples' worth by their bodies and what they do with them. In the last year, this fight has spread to over 200 cities around the world, where independent organizers have organized locally-driven SlutWalks and SlutWalk-inspired events. SlutWalk started, and is still going, because we and so many others around the world have had enough.
