10 Times Amber Rose And Feminism Were Completely As One
Whether she's 'raising her son as a feminist', arranging a slut-walk or taking on sexist talk show hosts, Amber Rose and feminism means a lot of good things for all of us...
Amber Rose isn’t afraid to make a statement. Whether it’s through her eye-catching personal style (boldly beautiful and defined by her signature buzz-cut) or her no-nonsense business acumen (she dishes out financial advice in her new bookHow To Be A Bad Bitch) Rose has carved out a career for herself as an outspoken feminist entrepreneur, with her strategically placed fingers (ahem) in a number of proverbial pies (acting, modelling, writing and campaigning to name a few).
On her ascent to the top, Rose has been brave and honest enough to discuss the media’s stereotyping ofwomen like her– and how in turn, it affects all of us. She’s pioneering a brand of feminism that embraces female sexual expression and shuns derogatory archetypes. She’s organising marches to encourage victims of sexual assault to speak out. She’s unwilling to accept that female sexuality instantly equates to female objectification, and her feminist movement is multi-faceted, and wholly intersectional.
Here are 10 times Amber Rose and feminism were fierce and fist-pumpingly excellent:
1. When she openly called out gender stereotyping in Hollywood
Amber’s interview with The Daily Beast this week was all kinds of amazing, not least because she makes a societal point about how men and women are treated differently for doing the same damn thing – in this case, stripping. She said: ‘No one gives a fuck that Channing Tatum was a stripper. He’s an established actor who’s at the Vanity Fair parties and the Oscars, but for me, no matter how far I go in my life, I see these stories that keep referring to me as a ‘former stripper.’ No one says ‘former stripper’ about Channing Tatum, or ‘former McDonald’s worker’ about Brad Pitt. No one does that to men.’ PREACH.
2. Did you hear about the time Amber guest-hosted a panel on sexual assault?
In October 2015, Rose chaired a show with sexual health specialist Dr. Jennifer Berman, OITNB actor Matt McGorry and singer Frenchie Davis. They discussed sexual assault, gender stereotyping, slut-shaming, consent, and why it’s so important to teach young men about women’s rights, with Rose declaring: ‘I’m raising my son to be a feminist.’
