Demonstrator took to the streets of Jerusalem for the capital's third-annual Mitzad Sharmuta (SlutWalk) march on Friday.

Protesters shouted slogans and carried placards through central Jerusalem in the rally against rape culture, including sexual assault and harassment directed at women. 

The campaign, which has gained international notoriety, was inspired by group of Canadian women who launched the protest in 2011 in response to a policeman’s comment that if women want to avoid being attacked they should not dress like sluts.
