Slutwalk Singapore 2012

Slutwalk started in Toronto in February of 2011 as a response to constable Michael Sanguinetti’s statement at a York university safety forum that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order to not be victimized.” This sparked a backlash which has resulted in Slutwalk groups forming all over the world to protest a culture that blames victims for rape, and to challenge the attitudes that come with that, which usually leave sexual crimes under-reported as a result.

The 2012 Slutwalk in Singapore was held in Hong Lim Park and was a symbolic gathering and an effort to break the silence surrounding sexual assault and to provide survivors with a visible symbol of solidarity. [ slutwalksg.com ]
