The March Against Rape Culture is a way for people to speak up and fight back against sexual violence and our culture that teaches women to avoid rape instead of teaching men NOT TO RAPE. I believe in an individual’s right to consent no matter their outfit, attitude, sexuality, gender or state of being. No means no.
For more information about this march, and its origins read in the Philly Declaration, and here,
and in the South Philly Review too!
