After staging her first ever SlutWalk, a video of a very emotional Amber Rose emerged as she told her history to the crowd who gathered in Los Angeles on Saturday. Now for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, the SlutWalk is an event Amber put together to combat slut-shaming, sexism, and the double standards we have in our society when it comes to the treatment of women when it comes to sex and sexual advances.
By most accounts, Saturday’s event was powerful and inspirational to the women in attendance which, to me, is the most important part of this event. Amber’s heartfelt recount of the events that inspired the event, painted broad pictures of her childhood, as well as her relationships with both Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.
I’m glad Amber did this. I hope others listen to her message and I hope this helps any young women who has ever been told that “she deserved it.”
