On Wednesday, March 28, at 2:30 p.m., the Appalachian State chapter of LIPS: Expressions of Female Sexuality Club hosted a “SlutWalk” through the streets of Boone. Approximately 50 people gathered and the walk began at Sanford Mall on the campus of ASU. Walkers made their way down King Street to South Depot Street, then down Rivers Street and back to Sanford Mall. “We are putting on this event to show that dress is not an invitation for violence or to be raped,” said Elizabeth Penick, co-founder of the ASU LIPS club. “It is also showing that people have the autonomy to decide who they want to have sex with, as long as it’s consenting, and they do not need to be judged or shamed for it.”
