The protest movement was sparked by a Canadian policeman who advised students to “avoid dressing like sluts” to avoid being victimised.
Since then, thousands of people worldwide have taken to the streets to highlight a culture in which they say the victim, rather than the abuser, is blamed.
While the march was sparked by attitudes across the Atlantic, marchers said recent comments on rape by Justice Secretary Ken Clarke plus the low conviction rate meant the issue was relevant in the UK.
Mr Clarke was forced to apologise after appearing to suggest some rapes were not as serious as others during a BBC interview on sentencing.
I am so glad to see women and men of so many diverse ages getting out on the streets and showing the world how wrong the blaming the victim game is, and how much a patriarchal culture is responsible for these messages.
