The movement began in Toronto in 2011 when a police officer said that women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be sexually assaulted.

The walk in Hong Kong will raise awareness of sexual assault, victim-blaming and rape culture. In light of a recent case, the walkers will also call for an independent investigation of the Bridge of Rehabilitation care home, and to increase public spending to end the privatisation and outsourcing of care homes.

All genders and age groups are welcome. Participating groups include Socialist Action, Ziteng, Gabriella and FEMPO.
