Join the global movement to end victim blaming and slut shaming, and march in SlutWalk Melbourne.

What started as a protest against a statement made by a Toronto Police representative in 2011, who said, “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimised," has now become a global movement and it's hitting the streets of Melbourne this Saturday.

Gathering on the front lawn of the State Library of Victoria at noon, there'll be a range of keynote speakers including Ramp Up Editor Stella Young, columnist Van Badham and National Queer Officer of the National Union of Students Hiba Casablanca.

All genders, all ages and all dress-types are welcome to attend and ultimately take back the word "slut."
