The Other Face of the Slut

The Other Face of the Slut

(Toronto, April 2011)

A large group of protesters walked the streets of Toronto towards Toronto Police headquarters on Sunday to rally against comments made by a police officer at York University's Osgoode Hall in January. April 3, 2011.

Slutwalk in Toronto was only a way to claim the city for women’s bodies. It was women’s participation in defining the meaning of the city and women’s attempt to make it body-friendly. Again, sexuality surfaced. Performing bodies came together to stage a piece about uncovering the bodies of women in Downtown Toronto.

About Ryerson On Yonge

A course in the Faculty of Arts, we have been studying the history of the neighbourhood around Yonge and Dundas, and Ryerson campus, in order to consider the social context and cultural importance of the new Student Learning Centre, which will occupy 341 through 355 Yonge Street. This blog is not an official Ryerson publication, and is a student-composed analysis of campus and its neighbourhood.
