‘Slut Walk’ missing the point

Newstalk ZB 9/05/2011

A controversial protest planned for Wellington next month is said to be missing the point. A ‘Slut Walk’ protest is being organised for the capital following a 2,000-strong march in Boston last week. The protest movement was sparked by a Canadian policeman’s remark that scantily dressed women could avoid being raped by covering up. Family First’s Bob McCoskrie supports the protestors’ message, but thinks the rally’s shock-value title is taking away from the real issue. “I think their cause is a completely justified one,” he told Newstalk ZB. “I’d just like them to do it in a family friendly way so that the message gets across rather than with a negative connotation.” Bob McCoskrie says the way women dress is irrelevant, as there’s no justification for rape.
