SlutWalk | NYC

On October 1st 3,000 – 4,000 people gathered to attended the SlutWalk NYC rally and march. The diverse crowd, primarily made up of young men and women, marched from Union Square through the East Village and past the 9th Precinct (former home of the alleged NYPD rapists Moreno and Mata) chanting; ‘Hey Rapists Go Fuck Yourself’ and ‘No means no – however we dress, where-ever we go!” The march coincided the day after the Wall Street Journal posted a story on Brooklyn cops telling women to ‘cover it up’ in response to ongoing series of sexual attacks in the Park Slope neighborhood.

SlutWalk NYC is a grassroots movement that challenges rape culture and victim-blaming, which works to end sexual and domestic violence.
