Are You Supporting Amber Rose's Slut Walk Event?

Progressive? Provocative? Do you even know what @AmberRose's event is? 

When it comes to news of sexual assault, how often have you heard the discussion turn to what the victim was wearing or what she was doing at the time? This attitude is sadly pervasive in our society, but it's something that many women have had enough of - Amber Rose included.

The Amber Rose Slut Walka march to combat sexual assault, gender inequality, and victim-blaming—will be held on October 3 and has already sold out at 6,000 attendees. Next month, thousands of people will gather at Pershing Square, some dressed in clothing others may consider "slutty," in order to challenge the idea that a woman's wardrobe choices can cause sexual assault.

Slut Walk wasn't created by Amber though. The first Slut Walk was held in Canada in 2011, when, during a campus discussion on sexual assault at York University, Toronto Police Constable Michael Sanguinetti claimed that women should avoid dressing like sluts in order to not be victimized. (Yes, he actually said that.)

The incident received international attention, and kicked off a movement that's still going strong today. Slut Walk was created by co-founders Sonya Barnett and Heather Jarvis to fight against victim-blaming and rape culture, and reclaim the word slut as a term for women in charge of their own sexuality.

The movement is a perfect fit for Amber, who is all about challenging the status quo. Just look at the coordinated outfits she and bestie Blac Chyna wore to the VMAsa body suit and gown, respectively, emblazoned with derogatory words for women. And they rocked those outfits without shame.

So, are you in support of Slut Walk? Do you think it's empowering or is it all just too much for you?
