Slutwalk NYC

This past weekend, I went to Slutwalk NYC. I could talk about what an incredible, inspiring experience it was. I could talk about how I did feel conflicted about what I saw as certain gaps between theory and practice of the movement. I could write a lot of things about the experience. But there has already been a lot written about Slutwalk – on this blog and many, many others.

So, instead of writing about Slutwalk, I want to show you. I want to share the pictures I took there, so if you didn’t get a chance to attend a Slutwalk,  you might be able to get an idea of what it was like.

Keep in mind I’m short, so these aren’t the best shots ever, but I tried my best.

Also, if you have pictures of your own experience at Slutwalk, please post links to your flickrs/other photo-sharing sites or email me at fbombsubmissions@gmail.com and I’ll try to publish them in this post.

    I have actually never heard of this walk before, so I actually prefer the fact that your blog showed the experience instead of just discussing it. Pictures are a very good at putting you in the scene and really help you to grasp what was going on at the time of the photo. I think you did a very nice job with the photos! It is always hard to pick out the most important pictures that really prove what you saw and I think these are great!

    I think these pictures are very good. I have never been to New York City at all, so this is definitely a side I have never seen. I think my favorite picture is the one that says “REAL MEN DON’T RAPE” because I watch the show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and rape seems to be a big issue in NYC, so it’s good to see people standing up and against it because in small towns like the one I’m from, when girls get raped, it’s “pushed under the rug” so our town doesn’t get a bad reputation.

    I actually had never heard of a Slutwalk until this summer I was in Seattle and I saw one there. I must say though, while looking through the pictures you took it seems as though the women as pretty well clothed. The one I watched was hard to turn away from, because half of the girls were close to naked. So many girls were wearing nipple tassles, thongs, or body paint and it was almost hard to see what message they were getting across. I remember one sign read “They called me a slut because I was pregnant. Sorry I was raped.” After I read that sign I started understand the point they were trying to get across, but at first, seeing half naked men and women walk down the street didn’t give a great first impression.

    I have never heard of slut walk rallies before, but the pictures shown in this rally seem positive as opposed to some other rallies which can have a negative depiction in some people’s minds. I understand it’s for a good cause, and it’s to help show awareness to the fact that people should not excuse rape for a women’s appearance. These rallies seem to be a very peaceful way to get your point across. I am very happy to see some people trying to fix this problem, and feel that there needs to be more awareness about this. Great post.
