I was SO disappointed not to be able to go to SlutWalk NYC this past weekend. (Between my car breaking down and basically my whole house getting the flu, there was no way we could make it.) But seeing all the pictures and reading the tweets made my heart glad, and I feel like I was there in spirit.
For those of you who couldn’t be there either, Therese Shechter (who is an amazing filmmaker working on a doc about virginity!) took some footage that gives you a sense of the amazing activist energy of SlutWalk.
“He pointed at my outfit and said, ‘Don’t you think your shorts are a little short?’” she recalled. “He pointed at their dresses and said they were showing a lot of skin.”
He said that such clothing could make the suspect think he had “easy access,” said Lauren.
She said the officer explained that “you’re exactly the kind of girl this guy is targeting.”
Calling SlutWalk! Jeez.
In-depth and important piece from Salamishah Tillet in The Nation.
Wonderful piece from my friend (and Feministing cohort) Lori about why she’ll be marching at SlutWalk NYC this weekend. (Hope to see you there!)
