Vagina Voices - SlutWalk

Hey Readers,

Sorry for the weeklong sabbatical from the blog. Technical difficulties! But we are back and ready for more posts and more challenges!
Today’s Vagina Voice comes from the SlutWalk in Toronto. Yes we know the walk already happened (May 26, I believe), but we’ve been dealing with some serious material in our rehearsals lately and the SlutWalk and other anti-rape campaigns have provided some reassurance and inspiration.
SlutWalk Toronto began in 2011 to fight back against victim-blaming and slut-shaming around sexual violence. The idea was sparked when a Toronto Police officer referred to women and survivors of sexual assault as "sluts" and suggested women 'dressing like sluts' were asking for it! To learn more about SlutWalk Toronto go here.
Below are some commercials we thought were also fitting for this topic. Please respond with your thoughts and other campaigns, articles, and other resources you have come across!

Happy Monday!
