On December 3rd, the Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (WRASAC) in Dundee, Scotland will host its annual Reclaim The Night March. Reclaim the Night London recently issued a statement advising march attendees that RTN is pro-Nordic model and anti exploitation of women and girls. In light of this, several people took to the Dundee event’s Facebook page to ask what their stance was.
This prompted a host of “male allies” to appear on the event page who took it upon themselves to explain to the Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre why they were wrong and why it’s very important for men to be able to have sexual access to women’s bodies.
Men like Julio completely miss the point of Reclaiming the Night. We’re reclaiming it from men like him who think women’s bodies should be accessible to all. WRASAC is a charity which supports women and girls who have been victims of sexual abuse. This man thinks he’s doing feminism by harassing survivors of rape and other forms of sexual violence – including prostitution – into acquiescing to the notion that “sex work is legitimate work,”
Why don’t you try it, Julio?
