My Short Dress Does Not Mean Yes

Adelaide student protest


Students in their 100’s marched
Today in Adelaide streets
Protesting against sexual
Class violence which they meet

The boys don’t care, don’t give a fuck
Girls just to them are toys
To satisfy their selfish whim
Because boys will be boys



“If we do not fix this dangerous toxic culture
before people graduate from school, we know it will lead
to more assault, more harassment, more attacks in our
workplaces, streets and communities”


(Former federal MP Kate Ellis)
