Slut Walk Marches Through Champaign-Urbana

Posted: Updated:

Urbana-  University of Illinois Students braved the weather to walk though Champaign-Urbana as part of the 4th Annual Slut Walk.

The walk began in Ontario, Canada after a police officer said women should dress less provocatively to avoid being raped.

The walk is meant to end what is called "slut shaming" which blames the victims of sexual assault.

"If you are robbed, a police officer wouldn't be like, well are you sure you didn't offer it to him?"  participant Jackie Genva said.

The event was put on through the Amnesty International and is a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
