What if we could wear our ‘slut wear’ outfits to the office?

About Us

It was the start of a monthlong campaign by the National Organization for Women to bring awareness to the issue of slut wear and the negative repercussions that come with it.

This month, the organization teamed up with New York City’s Metropolitan Opera House to host a series of events featuring performances of songs from their upcoming show, The Second Wave.

“It’s really important for us to be a part of this conversation,” said Kathy O’Leary, the executive director of the National Office for Women, which is part of the group.

“I want to be in a position where I can say, ‘I’m a woman, and I’m not afraid of this.’

It’s important to me that people know what they are, and what they can do to protect themselves.”

The new series of performances began last week, and featured performances by the likes of the Dolly Parton and Amy Winehouse.

“There are women who have said to me, ‘You know what, I would be a great dancer, but I would wear slut-like clothes,'” said O’Brien.

“And they said, ‘Yeah, I could do that.

It’s just so hard.'”
