Indian women alter Slutwalk

OMG, the WaPo has two feminist-related articles today! It’s gonna snow (we could only hope!) And, of all topics, they’re handling Slutwalk! On the down side, they do manage to get in a negative quote about feminism, something they can’t seem to resist.

Indian women alter Slutwalk to better match country’s conservatism 

The walk, designed as a protest against a Canadian police officer who advised women to “avoid dressing like sluts” if they want to be safe from sexual assault, has elsewhere involved women dressing as provocatively as they please. But in India, the SlutWalk set for this coming Sunday is getting a makeover, with student organizers saying they have tweaked the original concept to better match India’s conservative social palette.
