PHOTO STORY: Costa Rica’s Slut Walk 2.0

November 25, 2013

Accessibility Without Exclusion Party (PASE) presidential candidate Óscar López recently said in a radio interview that there was a “thin line between consent and rape.”

Those statements prompted outrage across the country, and the response was Slut Walk 2.0. Protesters last Friday night rallied to denounce López’s comments, as well as to speak out against Costa Rica’s ban on abortion, the Catholic Church’s position on social issues and violence against women, among other issues.

The march began at 8 p.m. in Parque Central, in downtown San José, and then headed east on Avenida 4, past the National Theater, and then west on Central Avenue to Parque Central. Here are some photo highlights. Share your reactions with other Tico Times readers on our Facebook here.
