Apparently Amber Rose’s work with feminist powerhouse Amy Schumer is no coincidence: The model recently told Cosmopolitan that the Internet has transformed her into her own “feminist monster,” and her activism combating slut-shaming proves that she’s trying to become the real deal.
What got her so engaged? Social media, she tells Cosmo—more specifically, Khloe Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Kanye West’s digs at her stripper past. Read More

There’s a new pro-ho website in town, and she wants you to "come inside."
Slutist calls itself a place for those of us who “embrace the YES.” It’s for those who own their hot bods and do whatever they want with them. Mostly, it’s for people who identify as sluts, which may or may not be your cup of tea.
The word ‘slut’ packs a punch. Some feminists hate it, and for good reason – it’s been spat at women for generations, from such hateful, grimy places as dark alleyways and Rush Limbaugh’s mouth. Read More

The number one reason I wish I lived in NYC, from this past weekend, was SlutWalk NYC! I really wish I could have made it. I even had a poster I wanted to make, inspired by (stolen from) another sign I'd seen online: "When a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and a round thing in your face YOU TREAT HER WITH RESPECT!" I love that these SlutWalks have been growing as a movement and happening all across the US, and even around the globe. Read More

Slut Walk NYC is a grassroots mission doing its part to end sexual and domestic violence to women all around the globe. The movement grew from a comment by a police officer who told women the best way to protect themselves against sexual violence would be to stop dressing like sluts. Understandably outraged, over 3000 women exercised their rights to free assembly and speech and marched to show support for the end of discrimination. Marches are now world wide with successful runs in London, New Delhi, Toronto, Nashville and other locations. Read More
Are you a slut? What do you think constitutes a woman as such? Is it what she wears? Is it how she carries herself? Does it justify rape? The fact of the matter is, nothing justifies rape. Nothing justifies excuses for sexual assault. Nothing justifies blame to be placed on those who are victimized. In Toronto, back in January a “slut march” was held in reaction to comments made by a Toronto Police Department officer in regards to student safety.
The officer stated that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized". Read More

On January 24th ,2011 at an information on campus safety at York University, a Toronto police officer put his foot in his mouth. He advised that "women should avoid dressing likes sluts in order not to be victimized." Students and staff of York University's Osgoode Law School have demanded an apology, but some people don't think an apology is enough. After all, the police officer in question isn't the only person to share this view. It's a popular and insidious belief that women are often at fault for their own sexual harassment by dressing to provoke. Read More
