We struggle to understand Black Women’s Blueprint’s (BWB) Open Letter (2011) attacking SlutWalk, global anti-rape actions.
We are delighted to be joining women, girls and our supporters of all ages and backgrounds at SlutWalk in London, part of global protests against rape and victim-blaming. As we prepare to join, we we’re circulating a response to Black Women’s Blueprint, the US group that discouraged Black women’s participation, though women of colour on every continent joined or organise marches.
