Canadians Celebrate Their Inner Sluts

After a police officer advised students at Osgoode Hall Law School to avoid rape by not dressing “like sluts,” students responded by organizing Toronto’s first SlutWalk.

“Sluts and allies” went for a skimpy walk around Toronto to protest the officer’s victim-blaming rhetoric.

“We are tired of being oppressed by slut-shaming; of being judged by our sexuality and feeling unsafe as a result,” reads the SlutWalk manifesto. “Being in charge of our sexual lives should not mean that we are opening ourselves to an expectation of violence, regardless if we participate in sex for pleasure or work. No one should equate enjoying sex with attracting sexual assault.”

Additional SlutWalks are reportedly planned for other parts of Canada.
