All You Need To Know About A Slut Walk

Amber Rose is breaking the internet with her upcoming slut walk. A number of Ugandan slay queens at Ugandan campuses and Universities are wondering what this means. For starters, a slut walk grew out of women activists desire to rally against body shaming. So they picked one of the words that is used to shame women aka Slut and turned it into something that could be seen as confidence boosting and grow positivity for ladies to not get shamed about their bodies.

According to Wikipedia;

SlutWalk is a transnational movement of protest marches calling for an end to rape culture, including victim blaming and slut shaming of sexual assault victims. Specifically, participants protest against explaining or excusing rape by referring to any aspect of a woman’s appearance. The rallies began on April 3, 2011, in TorontoOntarioCanada, after a Toronto Police officer suggested that “women should avoid dressing like sluts” as a precaution against sexual assault. Subsequent rallies have occurred globally.

The protest takes the form of a march, mainly by young women, where some dress as “sluts” in revealing, sexy attire such as short skirts, stockings and scanty tops. In the various Slutwalks around the world, there are usually speaker meetings and workshops, live music, sign-making sessions, leafleting, open microphones, chanting, dances, martial arts, and receptions or after-parties with refreshments. In many of the rallies and online, women speak publicly for the first time about their identity as rape survivors. The movement’s ideology has been questioned and its methodology criticized.

In Uganda, some of the famous women activities include Stella Nyanzi who has popularised her own Facebook slut walk through words. In 2011 when the Mini-skirt was banned, Ugandan ladies took to the streets in the first of its kind slut walk donning the very best of their micro skirts.
