Protest / Demonstration
SlutWalk Seattle 2012
September 9 (Sunday),
12 to 4 p.m.
Meet at Occidental Park, march north on 4th Ave, and rally at Westlake Park
No more victim-blaming. No more slut-shaming. SlutWalk Seattle is part of an international protest movement fighting rape culture.
full description & details:
We are going to march and rally to show that, no matter what you're wearing, no one deserves to be raped, assaulted, or harassed.
Inspired by our friends and allies in Toronto, we Western Washingtonians are ready to stand up, fight the social acceptance of rape in our culture, and reclaim the word "slut" SlutWalk began after a Toronto police officer said, "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized" Sadly, this mentality of blaming the victim, instead of the perpetrator of the crime, has become all too common.
SlutWalk Seattle 2012 will be held on September 9th, 2012, from 12 to 4. We will meet at Occidental Park, march north on 4th Ave, and rally at Westlake Park.
