Amber Rose Channels Top Feminist In Paper Magazine

Amber Rose channeled some of the world’s top feminists icons and leaders. She also spoke on her slut walk, what inspired it and why she feels she identifies with feminists.

The inspiration for the slut walk
“I would look on [Wiz’s] Instagram and he would have pictures of all these women all over him… and then I would post a picture of me and my son. And people would be like, ‘Does your son know that his mother’s a whore?
People are like, ‘Wiz is out fucking mad bad bitches and you’re at home crying over him because he’s the best thing that fucking ever happened to you and now you’re just a fat, bald-headed single mother and no one will ever love you.’ So yeah, I guess months of seeing shit like that, I was just like, ‘I can’t live like this. There’s something wrong.'”

Being labeled a slut in the eighth grade at a party while playing seven minutes in heaven when a classmate told her to get down on her knees in a closet
“That young, I didn’t know what [that] meant, it just didn’t register. But he’s like, ‘No, no, I’m telling you, get down on your knees. I’ll show you something.’…And then he just opens the door, right?…And I look over at him and he has his penis in my face, I’m on my knees — and still, girl, I swear to God, I swear on my son’s life, it still didn’t register to me why they were all gasping.
I was so young. I fell into a depression. Everyone hated me. I was the school slut.”
Wanting things to change
“I guess what I want with our generation is to have it not be that way, like, all of us as women, let’s just stick together and look out for each other. I was really glad that my Slut Walk was extremely diverse. There were all types of women from all walks of life there… That would be the main thing for me… really just try to take the racism out of feminism for our generation.”
