Miami Slut Walk is Back April 8th 2016

What is Slut Walk? You may cringe when you hear the name, but Slut Walk is not what is sounds like. Slut Walk is a call-to-action and global initiative to fight against institutionalized sexism. It is essentially, a protest rally against the rape culture and the patriarchy.

In 2013, the FIU chapter of the National Organization of Women decided that Miami needed its own SlutWalk and have continued the movement ever since. This year, Miami will host its 4th Annual  Slut Walk at FIU South Campus on the GC lawns.
