About SlutWalk Philadelphia

The focus of SlutWalk Philadephia is to challenge the thinking that it’s acceptable to live in a victim-blaming society. We are taught “don’t get raped,” instead of “don’t rape.” Our goal is to raise awareness and to start dialogues about ways in which our society perpetuates a culture that blames and shames the victim. This isn’t just a women’s issue. This isn’t just a men’s issue. This is everyone’s issue.

An Open Letter "We Will Not Tolerate Hate Speech"

Open Letter SlutWalk Philadelphia

We, Katie Bellis, Jake Aryeh Marcus, Nicole Roselli, and Hannah Altman, do issue this statement as leaders in organizing the SlutWalk movement in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

We would especially like to disclaim the racism exhibited in the sign carried by the person who walked in SlutWalk NYC, which bore the John Lennon and Yoko Ono song title “Woman is the Nigger of the World.
