The Physical Disability Council of NSW is running a new initiative called Community Conversations, it’s a series of meet-ups across the inner west where people can discuss issues and concerns about their local community.

It’s not specifically about disability and is open to everyone, although we’re hoping it will touch on ways that the inner west can be more inclusive and accessible.

The conversations are open to everyone in the local community and cover a diverse range of topics, and are not disability specific.

"Slutwalk" began after a Toronto Police representative put the responsibility for assault and rape of young women on the way that they dressed or acted, saying they should not walk around "like sluts". Yet rape and assault - which occurs overwhelmingly in dwellings and by people known to the victim, not by shadowy figures in dark alleys - is not about what a women wears or even sex. Rape is about power and the treatment of women as second class citizens.
