Detroit Slutwalk 2018: March for Consent
Intersectional feminist from various groups around metro Detroit will be hosting this event.
This is for prevention and support. Please report sexual assaults to your local police department . We are not able to help with current issues the focus on the event is for prevention and continued survivor support.
Also refer to Sasha Detroit, WC Safe, Haven are all local resources to seek current help. Thank you.
In response to the Brock Turner, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and current President the SlutWalk was born and continues to grow.
In Detroit we have had ENOUGH of victim blaming, of slut-shaming, sexual profiling and policing. We want to smash patriarchy! Consent is mandatory! No means No. Silence is not permission. Women's wardrobe no matter how revealing is not consent or asking for it.
We stand together to say "slut" does not have to be accepted as a word used against us to harm us but we have a stake in the language used to describe us, it is something we can challenge, it can be stripped of it's power.
This event is a completely inclusive space. This event has zero tolerance for hateful language, racism , ableism, fat-shaming, transphobia, xenophobia or any other form of bigotry. Furthermore, we recognize that shaming, oppression, assault, and violence have disproportionately impacted marginalized groups, including women of color and transgender people thus, we are actively working to center these groups at our event.
We deeply value the voices of marginalized groups and have a strong desire to find a common ground amount all of our intersections.
No more sexual violence No more victim blaming No more derogatory labels No more gender inequality
