What's in a name? This weekend, women and men from around our region will converge at the White House for D.C.'s first "SlutWalk." It's part of a global movement of young feminists trying to raise awareness about sexual assault and challenge sexist attitudes by reclaiming a hurtful word. But the language and the dress code of this grassroots movement is also generating a backlash. We talk with organizers of SlutWalkDC.
