(ThyBlackMan.com) Feminism is as a movement created to define, establish and achieve equal political, economic, cultural, personal and social rights for women. In regards to politics, women are the majority of the population yet occupy less than 25% of congressional seats. According to Steven Hill’s article “Why Does the US Still Have So Few Women in Office?”, the US now ranks 98th in the world for the percentage of women in its national legislature, down from 59th in 1998. In regards to economics, women are still making 78 cents for every dollar a man earns.

It’s estimated over 4 million women in the US have experienced domestic abuse. More than 75,000 women are raped each year and according to The Rape Crisis Center, 1 in 6 women are victim to an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime compared to 1 in 33 men.

Initially, Feminism was focused on safety, empowerment and equality for women. Today, we create room for Amber Rose as “The New Face of Feminism”.amber-rose-slutwalk-2015

Amber Rose who is an actress, fashion designer, Twitter celeb and mother is soon to be hitting the streets of Los Angeles on October 3rd for her “Slut Walk”.

Amber Rose stated via Instagram “My Slut Walk will be about every Woman Equality issue we deal with everyday u can walk and make signs for the issues ur passionate about,” she wrote. “I’m in the beginning stages of putting this together but with ur help this could be an amazing liberating experience for us women. Stay tuned for more info in weeks to come. #AmberRosesSlutWalk

The “Slut Walk” is an attempt to stop slut shaming as a result of women wearing revealing clothing, partaking in casual sex and exploring birth control options. While this isn’t the first “Slut Walk” to happen, this one has the face and heart of Amber Rose stamped all over it.

Feminism has taken a different approach over the last few years. It seems the focus of femininity is now on women’s fashion and sexuality. The right to parade around in the streets wearing as little as we choose, while rejecting the right of women who choose to cover themselves in public and often reminding them that they’re not free (naked) because they are oppressed by men.

The women and girl manufacturing industry grossed over $8 billion in 2014. Interestingly, less than 2% of women occupy CEO positions in fashion companies and occupy less than. One has to wonder if undressing publicly is the desire of so called empowered women or a plot to induce women into thinking they’re making the choice of what to put on their body?

It’s interesting that in today’s society where we are encouraging our black boys to pull their pants up and dress for success as a tool for empowerment and respect, black women are stepping forth to tell young black girls to wear their dress a little shorter and your shirt a little tighter for liberation and self-respect.

What are your thoughts?

    Becuzza the mentality in many of the comments, I have created “Screen Jeans” so that sexy woman can use their sex appeal, however they CHOOSE to and be physically protected from doing something by force.

  2. MindWars says:

    Ahhhh yes. Amber Rose and friends are here to supply fuel to the MGTOW movement. The slut walk is not just symbolic but the images of this event is taken to heart in hopes of becoming the ultimate sociopath. Why are women who carry themselves well and are “strong ” in the true meaning of the word looked at as weak? These type of people cannot coexist in a society that has corrected itself.

  3. Sandra G. says:

    Heaven help us. I wish they would shine the light on women who truly respect themselves and others. Who are making a significant contribution to society and who carry themselves in a modest manner.

  4. Marque Anthony says:

    Who respects a slut who does not respect herself?

  5. Marque Anthony says:

    It is sad how our people promote and accept trashy, classless, hoochie, whore-looking AA women who degrade and devalue women by objectifying their bodies. These women set an awful example for our young women. Is it any wonder that 70% of African American children are born out of wedlock. Our women are belittling and helping to emasculate our men and our men are acting like dogs chasing bones like Amber or Nikki.

    We have to set better examples than that.
    WAKE UP PEOPLE!

    Gianni,

    Lady there is something off about your thought process. Deflection is where you try to change the subject or justify ignorant behavior by highlighting someone else has ignorant behavior too. What is wrong with being sexy? Nothing, what I wrong with a past-grown woman with a child dressing half naked and then expecting her son to grow up and respect woman? Everything is wrong with that. And being strong and sexy are not the same thing. Why can’t woman, specifically black women be known for how intelligence they are, for how love and patient they are, for how spiritual they are, but no they are known for how slutty they are. And who cares about what white women and Hispanic women do. Over half of their sons and daughters are not incarcerated, but guess what the black woman cannot say the same thing. Also, 1 and 5 white women do not have hiv or some other non-curable dieses. Only black women in this country can say that. How about you get upset at the ignorant blackmen that read at 3rd grade levels and they are in their 20’s and beyond. How about you get angry at young black girls thinking the only thing they have to offer society and the world is a fat @ss and a dirty twat. How about you take as much issue with people only wanting you for your body as you take issue with people thinking you are a hore.

    And you wonder why people don’t give a crap about the black community, because too many people like you in the black community only give a crap about bull crap. You will fight for bull crap but you wont fight for anything of value. Valueless people fighting for valueless things.

    just more proof that black culture has been whore culture for sometime.

    Why not? why can’t a woman have a one night stand? FYI a man is doing it right along with her.They agree to do this.Consenting adults. Why is it the woman that gets Shamed? Really people? Grow up.They both have a good time! Why? because they want to, because they can, they both have fun. No Shame in that.Amber Rose is sexy and there’s nothing wrong with that. Women are beautiful and sexy by nature.Why should people shame them for being women.Women can be sexy and powerful. Look at Cleopatra, Marylin Monroe, , Amber Rose, Beyonce, Tori Kelly, Madonna, Pamela Anderson, Blac Chyna, Vanity. Being a woman and dressing sexy does not equal SLUT, it equals just a sexy woman, just like James Bond is just a sexy man he’s not considered a Man Slut and he has a lot of one night stands.Women are shamed, beaten, and raped, for just being women , can’t change nature.Dang Can They Live?
