(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'.
