Don’t let the name SlutWalk distract you from the issues that raised concerns for Amber Rose.
This name is meant to drive home the deleterious impact of using the “s-word” in rape culture. SlutWalk originally launched in Toronto, Ontario in 2011 in response to a local police officer’s statement to a group of female students that if they want to avoid sexual assault “women should avoid dressing like sluts.” And now, Amber Rose creating a GoFund Me account to put on her own 2015 event, which will be a Los Angeles-based version of the campaign to shut down the victim blame game.
Amber received a surprise donation of $5,000 from Nicki Minaj.
“Wow!!!! Somebody Loves Muva and totally gets the Movement!!!! Love u sis!!! @nickiminaj 😍😍😍😍😍”
As of now Amber has rose $25,000 for SlutWalk. If you wish to make a donation go to the official GoFund Me page.
