Description

SlutWalk Toronto began as a small idea in 2011 to fight back against victim-blaming and slut-shaming around sexual violence. Heather Jarvis & Sonya JF Barnett founded the march and galvanized their team into action. They took their name from a Toronto Police officer who referred to women and survivors of sexual assault as "sluts" and suggested women 'dressing like sluts' were inviting their own victimization. No matter what I wear No matter what I look like No matter what my gender expression is No matter how much, how little or what kind of sex I have No matter what I've done before No matter where I come from No matter how my body has been 'devalued' by others No matter what I've been called MY BODY IS NOT AN INSULT.
