“The point of the KILL ME dress,is to raise questions about violence against women and, specifically, what constitutes a woman ‘asking for it’? If she gets drunk at a party? Calls a guy a jerk? Wears a dress that says ‘KILL ME’ on it? It also states the obvious, whether you wear a dress that says ‘KILL ME’ on it or not, as a woman you always have a bullseye on your chest.” [Kathleen Hanna]
