In January, Rose told Motto that she created the SlutWalk to “be a safe place for women to come, twerk, go topless or wear pasties, get to know each other as women and understand we’re sexual beings. We all have skeletons in our closets, and we’re all allowed to do whatever a man does because he doesn’t get judged for it.”
Last year’s event drew thousands of people. It included booths to give women information about safe sex, victim blaming and consent, as well as a stage on which Rose shared her personal experience with slut-shaming. “It was just a lot of awareness, a lot of information, getting women and men educated on the equality issues we deal with,” Rose told Motto.
The announcement didn’t include specific activities, but stated that “women and their supporters will be invited to march and speak out to kick off the day’s events.”
