Also Listen to @DeenaAde on @LooseTalkGiants podcast talking about #Slutwalklagos SlutWalk
She discusses the epidemic of rape and #Slutwalklagos goals
The Slut Walk (Strong Ladies United Lagos) aims to fight the epidemic of violence against women by creating a discourse amongst the youth to take a provocative stance. Through this protest, they aim to encourage those who have been affected or relate to the cause to speak up and enlighten others. The current climate within our culture is enabling, and until we unlearn the problematic stance, violence and misogyny will persist.
The Slut Walk will be held on December 17, from 9am with the meeting point at the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge roundabout. If you’re interested, make sure to attend in black clothes with a gele tied to show solidarity. Join them in creating a new era of humanism in our very own country . It is literally our duty to society!
