Amber Rose Launches ‘Slut Walk’ In Downtown Los Angeles

Amber Rose’s “Slut Walk” was in full effect on Saturday (Oct. 3) in L.A., and the Philly native sought to place the topic of women’s equality at the forefront of a national discussion through this event.

The main purpose of the march was to also bring awareness to women who’ve been slut shamed, sexually assaulted, or raped, and earlier this year, Rose took to her social media platform to further explain the reasoning behind this movement. “My Slut Walk will be about every Woman Equality issue we deal with. Everyday you can walk and make signs for the issues you’re passionate about,” she said. “I’m in the beginning stages of putting this together but with your help this could be an amazing liberating experience for us women.”

In an interview with MTV, Rose revealed that she pulled ideas from her own experiences with equality issues to launch this march, mainly how some women are perceived based off of the type of clothing they decide to wear.

“It seems as though the authorities and men would blame the women, basically insinuating that they wanted to get touched because they had on a short skirt or they had a bra top — that they were asking for it,” said Rose. “I know from personally having male friends, there would be a girl in the club that was maybe dancing very sexy and she had a short skirt, and they would be like, ‘She’s DTF. She’s ready to go.’ And I’m like, ‘Maybe she’s just having fun with her friends and she doesn’t like you and she doesn’t want to have sex with you.’ But usually, men — and women, also — would look at a girl like that and assume that she was not just having a good time.”
