Slutwalk, Halifax, had a little lull and lack of interest last month. But thanks to Evette Awalt they are back in the swing of things! Here is the newly created mission statement from the executive group:
Slutwalk Halifax is committed to removing the negative power implied by users of the word “slut” and giving it back to individuals. We are working to end the cultural practice that teaches individuals to take responsibility for sexual violence committed against them, as well as the belief that the perpetrators are provoked. The Slutwalk Halifax event is an opportunity to educate Government, protective services, communities and individuals that sexual harassment, sexual assault and sexual violence are, without exception, the responsibility of the perpetrator.
GWSS is extremely excited about this event! We encourage you to offer some volunteer hours to the organizational process and to participate in the march. You can find more info on the FB event page!
