This from MIRCI at York Uni.

On January 24, 2011, during an on-campus safety forum held at Osgoode Hall Law School to discuss recent attacks on women at York University, Toronto Police Const. Michael Sanguinetti explained that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized."
He later apologized, saying he was "embarrassed" by his remarks.

There will be a protest called Slutwalk at York Uni on April 3rd.

Meanwhile, protesters in Australia carry posters calling our Prime Minister 'Bob Brown's Bitch'(Ok, so I put in the apostrophe) and in Libya a woman who claims to have been raped by 15 Gaddafi militiamen is being taken to court for defamation.

A few years ago the NSW Police Commissioner stated that women are fundamentally disrespected in our society.

Do we wait for sexism to die out with the men who believe women have no rights, or do we educate people every chance we get?
