Another summer prepares to come to a close here at the monastery of mayhem deep in the bowels of o Omaha Nebraska , bringing with it colder temperatures, the smell of firewood in the air, frosty mornings, pumpkin flavored everything and oh yeah! HALLOWEEN ! Lets add to that list with another omaha end of summer tradition The Omaha Slutwalk .
|Great Job On The Banner|
|Some of the great signs and the empowering messages they carry|
What is a slutwalk you might ask.. it is a tradition started in Toronto, Ontario, on April 3, 2011 it was expected that only 200 people would show but over 3000 came, this started a trend that has been repeated in cities all across the US, Canada and europe in response to the Toronto,s callus treatment of a rape victim stating if she didnt want to be raped she should not have dressed like a slut . This evente organized by Billie and Kristy is a way of empowering women and providing support and raising awareness of victim shaming and slut shaming in the cases of sexual assualt.

The participants of the event usually dress provocatively and this year red lipstick was worn by marchers as a show of support. The event ends with a march through the Old Market District in downtown Omaha with much chanting and displaying of signs and placquards.
The march brings out all kinds of people who's aim is to raise social awareness for the injustice of victim shaming.
