Please take a moment to read this post about what Slutwalk is about, then come back here and see how you can help!
We need 200 people to volunteer to be marshalls for the event.
We need to submit a list of 200 names and telephone numbers in our application for permits for the march. (We promise no names and numbers will be used for any other purpose than this). We need to do this urgently or we will not be allowed to march!
We need YOU!
If you would like to be a marshall on the day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the word MARSHALL in the subject line and your name and telephone number in the body.
And please spread the word!
At the beginning of this year a police officer in Toronto Canada told students at a law school that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”.
His lack of insite and knowledge of what constitutes sexual assault resulted in Slutwalk Toronto being born. Since then cities around the globe have put together their own Slutwalks and Johannesburg is no different. Spearheaded by Sandi ‘Sass’ Schultz, Slutwalk Johannesburg is set to take place in early July.
I will be walking with Sass and many other women on the day to pledge my support. You dont have to dress like a ‘slut’ to participate, you can wear your pajamas, your gym clothes, a ball gown, a suit, jeans and a T-shirt. Why? Because it doesnt matter how you dress you can be the victim of sexual assault! You dont even have to be a woman to participate, men, children, grannies, babies, gay or straight. Why? Because not only women are victims of sexual assault!
