From their Facebook statment -

'Slutwalk London: The radical notion that nobody deserves to be raped.

On 24th January 2011, a Toronto policeman told a group of law students that in order to avoid being raped 'women should avoid dressing like sluts'.

This sparked outrage around the globe, with women from Chicago to Amsterdam standing up and saying that we have had ENOUGH of being victimised and labelled, with women speaking out for freedom, equality and fun.'

From their Facebook page, 3,800 people will  possibly be attending the London march.
Student Anastasia Richardson, 17, is organizing the London march and spoke about the aim of the march,
'The reaction shows how relevant it is, especially in Britain where only 6.5% of rape cases end in convictions - and that's the ones we know about.'
3,000 people participated in the first SlutWalk in Toronto with 2,000 taking part in the event in Boston, US.
The events also had workshops on the prevention of sexual violence with speakers asking police and the law not to blame the victim after a sexual assault case.

Do you agree? Do you disagree? Is this the right/wrong way to put forward this message?

Everyone should have the freedom to dress as they like without consequence. Have your say!
