Slut Walk 2014

“Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized” said a Toronto policeman to a group of York University students in 2011. This was the tipping point in an increasingly hostile rape culture that fostered victim blaming and slut shaming. In response, activists created SlutWalk, an annual event that brings attention to the issue of sexual violence, and provides a platform for feminist discourse on rape culture.

In this episode of Adamant Eve, we marched in Edmonton’s SlutWalk 2014 on Saturday, May 31 in Wilbert McIntyre Park, talking to activists, organizers, and participants.
