WASHINGTON (WUSA) --- The Slutwalks,which began earlier this year after a Canadian police official said women would be less likely to be raped if they did not dress like sluts, move to Washington this weekend with a rally and march that begins across from the White House Saturday morning.
Organizers of the marches have embraced the term sluts to argue it matters not what a person wears. he or she is not inviting rape.
The protests are also meant to change attitudes, one goal of Maryland State Delegate Ariana Kelly of Bethesda.
"When I was a teenager in Bethesda, I was raped. I went to the emergency room at the advice of The Rape Crisis Center and there I was treated by a doctor, and the emergency room doctor there did not treat me well. He was very critical and judgmental," Kelly said.
