Roughly 600 women marched down Jerusalem’s Jaffa Road on Friday during the 8th annual Slutwalk protest, Ynet reported. 
 
The 2019 protest was held under the theme of “Constant Emergency Alert,” meaning that women in public spaces are “subjected to sexual violence wherever they go, no matter what they wear or how they act.”

Honoring the memory of Neta Hadid, a transgender woman who took her own life this week, protesters carried banners saying “May her memory bring the revolution.”
Hadid, 24, was a member of the Jerusalem Open House LGBT center.

Anna Kleiman, who has organized the march for the past three years and participated since its inception, told Ynet that “The state doesn’t have the tools to handle sex crimes and it seems they can’t be bothered to do so.”

“The lack of enforcement,” she said, “provides men with the legitimacy to use violence against us.”
