Thank You!

Thanks to all who supported Slutwalk with their time, their spirit, and their money.  At this time, we have covered the cost of the walk (w/enough left over to donate to a group that provides support to those who have been sexually assaulted).  If you would like to help support this cause, we recommend that you donate to the Safe Haven Crisis and Recovery Center for Sexual Assault; here is a link to their donation site!

It’s Official! Knoxville’s Slutwalk is October 7th

Knoxville’s Slutwalk has an official date & time.  We will meet Friday, October 7th at 5:30 at Krutch Park…more details to come of the route we agree on…

Please stay on the sidewalks/out of the streets as we walk, roll, holler and stomp against a culture of shame, sexual double-standards, slut-shaming and victim-blaming and for enthusiastic consent, equality, education and sexual assault survivors’ rights.

This is not an event about specifically “dressing slutty” – wear whatever you like, whatever you feel comfortable in. Some Slutwalkers will be dressing provocatively, some not. You may want to show up with a sign or shirt that expresses how you feel about the issues addressed by Slutwalk, or just scrawl how you feel across your body with lipstick or a marker when you arrive!

You can RSVP to the event on Facebook here

Donation Button!

When Alex & Astrid originally announced a Slutwalk for Knoxville, they were pleasantly surprised to realize that the interest in the event was so great that we would need a parade permit to actually hold the walk.  A number of very excited and energetic volunteers are currently organizing a very cool fund-raising event to help cover the cost of the insurance required to obtain a parade permit; however, a number of you asked if there was any way that you could go on and donate to the cause right now.  While we still hope to see each & every one of you at the fund-raising event (details to be announced soon, but careful readers of the Facebook page already have a sense of how much fun it is going to be), those who wish to do so can now donate to the event directly by clicking on the button found on the “Donate” page of this site!  Thank you all!!
