Amber Rose Channels Feminist Icons For Paper Magazine
By Celeb Editor
Amber Rose posed for a Paper Magazine editorial that let the Philly native channel feminist icons throughout history from War World II poster gal Rosie the Riveter and Susan B. Anthony, to Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes.
In the accompanying article she explains that she made the decision to cease being a “slut shamer, promote sex positivity and identify as a feminist following her split from Wiz:
“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 says. “People are like, ‘Wiz is out f***ing mad bad b***hes and you’re at home crying over him because he’s the best thing that f***ing 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.’”
