‘Sluts’ take to streets of Lisbon

leave a comment »

Portugal had its first slut walk last weekend. The phenomenon seems to have gone global after the first in Canada in response to a cop’s advice to female law students to stop dressing like sluts  if they didn’t want to be raped. Portuguese sluts, or Galderias, walked down Lisbon’s Avenida da Liberdade to protest at arbitrary moral distinctions between innocent women and sluts in rape cases.

Portuguese women also wanted to express their understandable alarm at the recent decision by a Porto court to acquit a male psychiatrist charged with raping a pregnant patient during a consultation.  The placard in the pic says: “Don’t tell us how to dress. Tell them not to rape!”
