SlutWalk Melbourne Naarm 2021

Wednesday, 27 October 2021 - 1:38pm

Between 1-2 pm on Saturday 13 November 3CR collaborated with SlutWalk Melbourne collective to bring another year of powerful speeches to the 3CR airwaves for SlutWalk Melbourne Naarm 2021.

This years rally was hosted by Artist and proud Gumbaynggirr woman Aretha Brown with Sasja Sÿdek, Mev Taylor, Nicky Stott & Taylah Austen in the studio. Speeches from Queenie Bon Bon, Dr Blair Williams & Eva Sless.

‘We stand together, strong, and reject a society that believes perpetrators over survivors.
A system that attempts to penalise people who stand against the patriarchy.
We reject a toxic culture that determines our worth based on the colour of our skin, our gender identity, and sexuality.
It’s a controversial name, but not a controversial message!’

In 2011 a Canadian police officer told a group of university law students that they could reduce their risk of sexual assault by “avoiding dressing like ‘sluts’”. In response to this statement the first SlutWalk was held in Toronto, Canada that year, quickly spreading across the world with a clear message - end rape culture, victim-blaming and slut-shaming. This action sparked a worldwide movement which saw SlutWalk Melbourne host its first rally in 2011.

Thanks to Sasja Sÿdek (Behind Closed Doors),  Nicky Stott (Earth Matters), Leah Ward & Mev Taylor (SlutWalk Collective), Aretha Brown, Dr Blair Williams, Queenie Bon Bon, Eva Sless & Taylah Austin.
