On this week's episode of Progressive Voices, Women* of Hamiilton Against Patriarchy (WHAP) discuss their concerns and critiques of Slutwalk as presented in their open letter, Dear Hamilton Slutwalk Organizers.

WHAP reference and elaborate upon several aspects that are problematic to Slutwalk -- the context of white, university-class women within which it arose, Slutwalk's exclusionary nature towards women of colour, Indigenous women, and sex workers, and Slutwalk Hamilton's collusion with the police -- while also noting the need for a broader analysis of rape culture and emphasizing an anti-capitalist critique of patriarchy.
