Slutwalk, a march to end victim blaming, will be held on Friday, September 27th on the UConn Campus. This years’ Slutwalk is organized by the student group Revolution Against Rape and will be leading the event down Fairfield Way at 4pm. Slutwalk is a direct action approach to sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape culture by challenging these aggressions of power and violence.
