Korean Slut Walk 2011


Slut Walk, began as a protest demonstration in Canada when a police officer basically blamed rape on women's responsibility, that a woman who dress like a 'slut' is asking for it (in a nutshell).

Well, it arrived in Korea too, in Hongdae. Korea is still a society where women are relatively treated worse than men (not that the situation hasn't improved, but I believe it's still got a long way to go). I thought of this event as a pleasant surprise, though most news media portrayed this event as a bunch of crazy slutty women making a ruckus.

I'm going to leave Roboseyo to comment on this event. He wrote a lengthy and very insightful blog post about it.
