Well, first, it all got started because the chief of police of the Toronto force told a class of students at York University (where sexual assaults are sadly frequent), that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized."
Women who have been sexually assaulted were quick to call extreme bullshit on this comment, and the police were quick to issue an apology, but that's not good enough. It's not good enough because the chief was expressing a view that the police in this city actually believe is true, and that's the problem that needs to be addressed. So SlutWalk was born to show the police and anyone else watching that saying that a woman could prevent sexual assault by dressing differently is a myth - rape is not about sex or sexual attraction, it's about power and violence.
Was it a slutty snowsuit, because you know how suggestive
those low-cut parkas can be
Were they slutty jeans? It might be your fault.
