Morganne Ray, LCSW's insight:
Events like the Burlington Slut Walk can be so important to those who have survived trauma, where ever they are in the healing process. To folks who have recently experienced trauma, it is an opportunity to get social support, and see that there are those out there who have made it through. For those who are beginning to process their experience, it can be an outlet to tell the story to supportive others who can witness the pain and the strength of the individual, and/or practice mastery over a situation that has previously led to trauma. Organizing these types of events, and fighting back against the institutional oppressions that condone violence can be a way to reconnect to one's community and trade the identity of victim for an empowered survivor identity.
