Today Windhoekers took to the streets a slut shame walk under the theme Embracing Womanhood through sisterhood. The slut shame walk-in Namibia is to advocate for safety and protection of Namibian women whilst encouraging them not to remain silent but to name and shame abusers.

Hundreds of men and women pulled up in numbers wearing colorful outfits including underwear, miniskirts and body paint with messages such as ‘ Issa look, not consent’.

During the demonstration, protesters were chanting ‘stop raping our women’.

The slut shame walk has been described as the most successful feminist protest action in 20 years. The central purpose of the slut shame walk is to remove shame from the term “slut” and reclaim women’s space and right to sexual self-assertion. Namibian personalities Odile Gartze, Fatima Shaningwa and Maria Nepembe are some of the many who rallied behind the cause.
