USM’s Huskies for Reproductive Health and Queer Straight Alliance are joining forces again for a second SlutWalk. Planning is of course still in the works, but the plan is to begin in Congress Square Park and end at Portland City Hall.
We welcome any community organizations who may want to partner! Email Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, ideas, etc.
We are looking for an ASL interpreter and speakers!
Description of the history of SlutWalk from Time Magazine:
On April 3, 2011, approximately 3,000 women (and men) marched the streets of Toronto in what they dubbed a SlutWalk. Angered by the comments of a Toronto police officer — who had ill-advisedly said that women shouldn’t “dress like sluts” if they wanted to avoid being assaulted — marchers rallied to protest blaming rape victims for their own assaults. To date, more than 50 satellite walks have taken place in major cities around the world, including Boston, London, New Delhi and Sydney. Dozens more are being planned and the original organizers have said they plan on making SlutWalk an annual event.
