JERUSALEM, May 31 (UPI) -- A group of people took part in Jerusalem's third-annual SlutWalk march and demonstration Friday, calling for an end to sexual assault.

Demonstrators carried posters and shouted slogans protesting sexual assault against women.

The campaign started with a group of Canadien women in 2011 protesting a police officer's comment that if women wanted to avoid sexual assault they shouldn't dress like sluts.
