To take control of our own stories.

Anita Hill | 1991

What people need to understand and appreciate about the SlutWalk is what I see as a movement to take control of our own stories as opposed to letting others define us. Whether or not you agree with the language or the terminology is not as important as the fact that you have young women willing to put themselves on the line to be able to define who they are- that I find extraordinarily compelling and so important if in fact we’re going to get to that 21st century vision for gender equality. That is so critical and I think that is where the SlutWalks are headed and I support that.
