If some of you haven’t got a big X marked on the calendar for tomorrow, we’ll just go ahead and remind you that this Saturday is Cleveland’s inaugural Slut Walk. As we first reported at the beginning of the month, the walking-talking feminist exhibition is all about taking back the offending word and sending a message about sexual assault.

“We have a problem with the idea that you deserve somehow less respect if you’re dressed in what is considered slutty clothes, whatever that means,” event organizer Casey Schroeder told Scene. “This is about demanding respect, safety, and fair treatment regardless of the way that we’re dressed.”

For the details, we suggest you aim your browser over to the event's official web site.
