Eight Annual Slutwalk Scheduled for Saturday

Chicago’s 8th annual Slutwalk demonstration will take place on Saturday, beginning at noon at the Chicago Water Tower monument on Chicago and Michigan Ave. Hundreds march each year in Chicago and other cities across the country to demand an end to rape culture, police violence, and to show support for and solidarity with survivors of sexual assault. Organizers say this year’s march is also to support a demonstrator last year who was arrested during the 2017 march, who they say was falsely accused of biting a police officer. “These false charges are based on transphobia and HIV stigma,” organizers said in a press release.
