slut walk hong kong

A couple of months ago, i got in contact with the founder of Slut Walk Hong Kong and asked if i could volunteer for the upcoming march on November 24th. I got the title PR for Slut Walk HK which i was so stoked about, and i got to work straight away promoting and creating posters.

I am definitely on a mission to make this years Slut Walk HUGE.

SLUT WALK FACTS:

  • Slut Walk was started in 2011 in Toronto Canada which was a response to a police officer which made the statement “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimised”
  • In Hong Kong, sexual abuse is the second most common type of abuse this year (after physical abuse)
  • Someone in the US is sexually assaulted every 2 minutes
  • In South Africa, a woman is killed every 6 hours by an intimate partner
  • In Sao Paulo, Brazil, a woman is assaulted every 15 seconds
  • 1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 5 boys will be sexually abused before they reach their 18th birthday
  • In Afghanistan, woman are imprisoned for being raped
  • 1 in 6 women in America has been the victim of an attempted rape in her lifetime

This is just unexceptable to me.

After i heard about the story of the 21 year old student who was raped by 6 men in a bus in India. She was rushed to Singapore for treatment where she died from her injuries.
I heard somewhere that India is allowed to give out roughly 170 death sentences a year and have only given about 100 in 10 YEARS.

Without the protests in India in support of the girl that lost her life and others, they were most likely to do some time and then walk free. However, because of the demonstrations and outrage all over the world,  4 of the men were  hung and 1 committed suicide in jail.

Secretary of security Lai Tung-Kwok said when responding to the rise of rape in Hong Kong said women should drink less to avoid rape. So he’s telling women that if you drink too much, you ARE going to get raped and it’s up to us to make sure it doesn’t happen. WHAT A DUMB FUCK.

SAVE THE DATE:  So join us on November 24th 2013 at TImes Square, TV screen, Causeway to march in support of the women blaming for the actions that they never cause or asked for.
The blame should be put on the perpetrators that come up with stupid fucking excuses to justify their behaviour.

LOVE, p
