Worn Fashion Journal covered the
Toronto Slutwalk
A campaign protecting women's rights against sexual violence.  The protest was prompted after a police authority made a public statement generalizing "dressing like sluts" and rape. 
The crowd chanted:
 "However we dress, wherever we go, yes means yes and no means no." 

>Reading this story reminded me of a part I just read in Persepolis, when one woman is sexually attacked in the streets for not wearing her veil, dressing "promiscuously" and "asking for it".
