Amber Rose has a strong brand of feminism and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Amidst the outrage after Brock Turner’s exceedingly lenient sentencing, Rose told Cosmopolitan.com, “This is where the education comes in, because if there’s not consent before you have sex, it is rape. Period,” in the midst of planning her second L.A SlutWalk.
The event allows her to speak publicly about consent, slut shaming, sexism, and double standards. This year she hopes to make the event even more exciting, ““It’s kind of like a female version of Coachella. We have different vendors. We have a bunch of tents you can go to and get educated. What rape is. Sexual assault. We have HIV and AIDS testing…We wanna have musical guests.”
Rose made headlines in February appearing on the new relationship series “It’s Not You, It’s Men”. She wasted no time schooling Rev. Run when he commented that women should dress the way they want to be treated: “If I want to wear a short skirt or a tank top, and I’m at the club and I’m having fun with my friends and I feel sexy, I’m not DTF,” she says. “I didn’t come here to have sex. I didn’t come here to hook up with nobody. I came out here with my girls and I just feel pretty. I’m not ‘asking for’ nothing.”
SlutWalk 2016 will be happening on August 13th in D.C. The event is free, and more details can be found here.
