Muslim girls wanna show off legs
Latest Slut demo. Jakarta. The biggest Muslim country in the world. Not the country where you expect to see slogans like: “Don’t Tell Us How to Dress, But Tell Them Not to Rape” and “My Mini Skirt, My Right, Foke You”. About 50 women against strict clothing rules and the right to parade around in mini skirts to show off bare legs. This protest wasn’t a reaction to the Canadian cop, but to Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo’s recent statement blaming women’s clothing for sparking sexual assault. Bowo has apologized but the Alliance of Women Rejecting Rape wanted to take a stance. We have seen several Slutwalks around New Zealand, but almost as much protests promoting the burqa. Two extremes. Which do you support?
