Inspired by the original SlutWalk, held in April 2011 in Toronto, and by the wave of SlutWalk events that have happened around the country, and indeed the world, we, the women of New Orleans, will hold our third annual march on Saturday, April 5, 2013.
SlutWalk was born as a protest, a protest from women who have long tired of the "blame the victim" mentality perpetuated by society, law enforcement, civic authorities, and even our own family and friends.
Sexual violence is always a crime, and the victims of assault are never at fault!
