(Reuters) – Hundreds of
women and men in Mexico City marched for women's rights on Sunday in the
so-called 'slut march'. An international movement, the march aims to bring
attention to violence and sexual crimes against women around the world.
Holding signs and chanting 'no means no', one woman explained the double
standard of wearing revealing clothing.
"Harassment on the streets is
something we don't really complain about, I mean, they've gotten us used to
thinking 'it's our fault.' Our fault if we wear a miniskirt, our fault if we use
lipstick, our fault if we walk by ourselves, and many other things. Like we are
are asking for it. Then, deep down, we begin to think it IS our fault and when
they call out to us on the street we just keep going, we don't say anything, and
we just keep quiet all the time."
According to a 2006 survey,
four out of 10 Mexican woman have been the victims of sexual aggression,
particularly in public places and at work.
The first 'slut march' was held
in Toronto Canada in response to a police officer who told women if they didn't
want to be harassed by men, they shouldn't dress as quote 'sluts'.
