Wellington SlutWalk is coming up on 25 June, and I’m going to be there. But there’s a hell of a lot of different views out there on the SlutWalk phenomenon,and gosh darn it if I don’t think this is a damn good discussion for feminism to be having.
I don’t agree with all the perspectives linked and cannot vouch for the safety or non-triggering-ness of comments on other blogs. It’s also going to be pretty Southern-Hemisphere-centric!
