She isn’t the first one, The SlutWalk movement begin in 2011, in Toronto, Canada which gained momentum globally. The movement begin after Constable Micheal Sanguinetti, a Toronto Police officer suggested that ‘women should avoid dressing like suts’ as a precaution against sexual assault. The young women marched dress as ‘sluts’ in revealing, sexy attire such as short skirts, stocking and scanty tops. Some women also speak publically for the first time as rape survivors.
