Come join the SlutWalk New Orleans march this Saturday

In 2011 a Toronto police officer remarked that in order for women to avoid being victimized they should refrain from 'dressing like sluts.'

The outrage sparked by this insanely insensitive comment however became something positive - it created a movement. A protest march was formed to raise awareness about victim-blaming and subsequently similar marches have popped up in over 250 cities on six continents.

And one of those cities is, of course, New Orleans.

Tomorrow, April 5, come out and support the third annual SlutWalk New Orleans. What a wonderful way to honor and create awareness to Sexual Assault Awareness Month as well.

Beginning and ending at Congo Square in Armstrong Park, SlutWalk New Orleans will lead supporters once again in an objection to the "blame the victim" mentality conveyed by too many members of society, law enforcement, civic authorities, and sadly, sometimes friends and family.

Come on out tomorrow morning to march and show your support. Meeting time is 10:45 A.M. at Congo Square (corner of North Rampart and St. Peter) and the march will begin at 11 A.M.
