Slut!: A conference on Bully, Rape, and Sexuality is a two-day Fall event in NYC. The conference will feature expert panels, a screening of IT WAS RAPE by Jennifer Baumgardner, a performance of the original play SLUT by The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company, and the coming together of a NYC Girl Coalition that will develop plans of action for addressing Slut shaming and sexual agression in their school communities.
The organizers of The StopSlut conference are committed to understanding and critiquing the historical and current ways the word "slut" has been used to dehumanize women and to cover for injustices against them. The ways "slutting" affects individual women is inextricably linked to their class, race, and other key elements of community and identity.
