Woman Groped At R&V Is Planning A 'Glittery March' For Consent
Madeline Anello-Kitzmiller made headlines across the globe last week, after she was filmed punching a man who groped her without consent.
After the footage went viral, she took to Facebook to reveal her side of the story, and shared strong message for those who criticised her actions and outfit.
"The problem is not the clothing, stop victim blaming," she said. "Comments stating that I was asking for it are promoting rape culture."
Madeline is now organising a 'Glittery March' for consent, which is set to be held in Auckland later this month.
"In regards to the #glitterboobs incident (everyone must have seen it by now if you haven't we will share some links in the event) a worldwide discussion has begun over sexual harassment/assault, over what it means to have a body and what rights we have," read the event description.
"This is a discussion that has been long overdue. On January 28th we are marching in Auckland together, to stand in solidarity with each other and for anyone who has ever been the victim of sexual assault, victim blame, anyone who wants to stand up and say this is my body and these are my rights."
According to the Facebook event, "GypsyFestNZ will be "glittering as many humans as possible" on the day.
A time is yet to be confirmed, but if you want to find out more about the march, click here.
