What is slut-shaming?
The action or fact of stigmatizing a woman for engaging in behavior judged to be promiscuous or sexually provocative.
Slut shaming is an act of bullying, and can vary from negative side comments to abuse, all because of the way a girl may dress, act or do.
What is #StopSlutShaming?
This campaign, #StopSlutShaming, was established to raise awareness of slut-shaming and help stop it. Slut-shaming transpires everywhere and every day, even if one conducts such actions unintentionally. It is a fundamental subject for people worldwide to be educated and aware about, and it is our upmost goal to increase awareness. We hope you can aid us in this journey of ours of prevention, equality and liberty.
How can I join and help?
