It probably hasn't.  But SlutWalk doesn't really have anything to do with reclaiming words.

SlutWalk appeared as a reaction to the words of Michael Sanguinetti, a Toronto police officer, who stated that in order for women to remain safe (and avoid being sexually assaulted), they should avoid dressing like "sluts."

SlutWalk's campaign advocates for victims of domestic violence, and it is against the notions of victim-blaming and slut-shaming (see Jevan Lemoine's collapsed comment below for examples of both).  It also embodies the idea that a woman's sexual choices (even if they are promiscuous ones) do not justify sexual assault.  That's it.  The use of the word "slut" in SlutWalk is more for irony's sake than anything else.
