Lucy discusses her experiences as one of the co-organisers of the Leeds Slutwalk. The Slutwalk movement began in Toronto, Canada when a police officer suggested that a a victim of rape may be partly responsible for the attack, because of the way she was dressed. As a result a worldwide protest movement has sprung up with people taking to the streets in organised events.
