All hail, Amber Rose.
Despite the backlash she’s faced in 2015, Amber continues to flip the narrative and we’re loving every minute of it. In her latest instance of feminist greatness, the 32-year-old channels the movement’s icons in numerous outfits and wigs for PAPER magazine. The only way to describe it? Everything and more.
In addition to Rosie the Riveter, Amber pays homage to Susan B. Anthony, Gloria Steinem, Dorothy Pitman Hughes, Pussy Riot, and Marlene Dietrich. Also in the spread, she opens up about how the end of her marriage to Wiz Khalifa kick-started her feminist journey: “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 fucking mad bad bitches and you’re at home crying over him because he’s the best thing that fucking 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 shit like that, I was just like, ‘I can’t live like this. There’s something wrong.”
She also discussed the criticism she received following her Slut Walk, an event that had her trending on Twitter: “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.”
