Slut Walk. A walk where men and women get together with signs and they dress how they want and as provocatively as they want to prove and make the point that it doesn't matter how one is dressed. Their clothes do not speak for them and that is something that everybody in society needs to realize.
I think it's important to clarify: according to RAINN's statistics, SOMEONE in the U.S. is raped every two minutes--and that someone is not necessarily a woman. Though rooted in patriarchy and misogyny, rape culture (and rapists) target people of all genders.
Rapists are the cause of rape. What a woman wears, says, drinks or does is not a factor. The common factor in all cases of rape is the presence of a rapist.
