Great post from Katha Pollitt in The Nation

Katha Pollitt on SlutWalk


Some key quotes from the article:

– Walkers aren’t saying, “Please call me a slut, big boy”; they’re saying, “I am Spartacus”

– Even more, they are attacking the very division of women into good girls and bad ones, madonnas and whores. Don’t be misled by the fishnet stockings and miniskirts. These women are making a radical challenge to foundational ideas about women’s sexuality—and men’s.

The whole thing is a good read, check it out!
