Highly debated and controversial around the world, Slut Walks started as a way to take back the term 'slut,' which has traditionally been used as a shameful moniker for those who are sexually promiscuous, be it for work or pleasure. Primarily, it is women who have suffered under the burden of this label and flippant insult. Slut Walks aim to reverse 'slut-shaming' and being judged by ones sexuality and feeling unsafe as as result. Being in charge of one's sexual life does not mean that one is opening oneself up to an expectation of violence, regardless if we participate in sex for pleasure or work. No one should equate enjoying sex with attracting sexual assault.
