'SlutWalks' Fight Stigma Against Sexual Assaults

May 06, 2011  | 

A group of advocates for rape victims has taken to the streets to try to take the stigma off women who've been sexually assaulted.

A series of protests known as "SlutWalks" have spread across the world to bring attention to "slut shaming" — or blaming the victims for being raped.

The events are apparently inspired by a Toronto police officer's comment that women can avoid sexual assault by not dressing "like sluts."
