Slutwalk DC, 2011 will take place on Sat., Aug. 13 at noon in Lafayette Park, 16th and H Sts. NW. WDC. Slutwalk is an in-your-face protest movement to stop sexual violence against women. The march aims to challenge the sexist culture that excuses sexual violence and teaches women "don't get raped" rather than teaching men "do not rape!" While some women embrace the term "slut" to represent their sexual liberation, slut is still a term that is viciously used against women to demean our worth, thoughts and decisions. Join in whether you embrace the word slut or hate the word slut - because the goal is to stop sexual assault and violence against women! Go to www.dcslutwalk.org.
