Amber Rose has been loud about her alignment with feminism. From her jumpsuit at the 2015 VMAs to organizing her first annual SlutWalk, Amber's pro-gender equality statements are loud and bold, which is why her latest shoot with Paper magazine seems especially fitting for her.
For the spread, Amber dresses up as iconic feminists ranging from Rosie the Riveter to a member of Pussy Riot to Susan B. Anthony.
She also discusses her introduction feminism, citing her divorce from Wiz Khalifa as the reason she decided to call herself a feminist.
"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?'" she said. "People are like, 'Wiz is out f--king mad bad bitches and you're at home crying over him because he's the best thing that f--king 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 s--t like that, I was just like, 'I can't live like this. There's something wrong.'"
Since then, she's gone on to become synonymous with sexual freedom and speaking out against slut shaming. But her main goal, she says, is to eradicate racism from feminism.
"I guess what I want with our generation is to have it not be that way," she said. "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."
