Whittier College goes pro hoe

“No bad women, just bad laws” “You are worth more than who you f–ck.” “I’m a feminist. What’s your superpower?” These signs decorated the streets surrounding Pershing Square in Los Angeles this past Saturday, Oct. 6. The Violence Intervention and Prevention Club (VIP) took a group of about 10 students to the Amber Rose SlutWalk. The SlutWalk was created in 2011 back in Toronto, in protest of a police officer who told a group of college students that if they did not want to be raped, they should not dress like sluts. This ill advice has created over 200 SlutWalks around the world where people are dedicated to bringing awareness to sexual violence, victim blaming, body shaming, and gender inequality.
