Erica is a reporter for Moose FM and energeticcity.ca in Fort St. John, B.C. She grew up in Victoria, B.C. and received her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

The movement began in Toronto in April 2011, after a police officer said that “women should avoid dressing like sluts” in order to stay safe.

According to the local Facebook event, the walk aims to spread the word that “victim-blaming is a problem that needs to be addressed within our protective services and in society as a whole”. This is done by a group of women and men taking to the streets in various states of dress in protest of using a woman’s appearance as an excuse for a sexual assault.

In Fort St. John, the group will meet at Centennial Park at 3 p.m., Saturday, September 15, and after a few speakers, march together up 100 Street to the RCMP station.
