Model Amber Rose more than started a conversation when she posted a bottomless photo of herself to Instagram and Twitter. The star is the creator of the SlutWalk, a feminist movement to raise awareness about sexual injustice and gender inequality. Racism, fat-shaming, sexism or abusive language that decades another person or group is not tolerated at the event.

Rose started the walk three years ago to bring awareness to these issues. While most people would consider the word “slut” to be offensive, Rose’s idea is essentially to change the meaning of the word and make it empowering.

But more than that, it’s about being inclusive. “We deeply value the voices of marginalized groups and have a strong desire to find common ground among all our intersections,” the message on her website reads.

“The Amber Rose SlutWalk Festival is an inclusive space,” she continues on her website. “This event is a zero-tolerance event, and we do not condone hateful language, racism, sexism, ableism, fat-shaming, transphobia, or any other bigotry. Further, we recognize shaming, oppression, assault, and violence have disproportionately affected marginalized groups, including women of color, transgender people, and sex workers, and we are actively working to center these groups at our events.”

While at the festival, there are musical performances, celebrity guest appearances, a place to make signs, a pep rally, pink carpet where people can take the “walk of no shame” and much more.

The model, who was previously married to Wiz Khalifa and dated Kanye West, was inspired to create the walk after she was slut-shamed at the tender age of 14.

“My earliest memory of slut shaming was when I was 14 years old. I was still a virgin. I made out with this boy. And it was at the time when, like, all of my girlfriends and the little boys in school, we just start doing Seven Minutes in Heaven and kissing and stuff in the closet,” she told Cosmopolitan Magazine in 2015.

“I thought it was the end of the world. And it was very difficult for me, so as I got older, I guess I realized that things like that are just out of my hands. Like, I couldn’t help it,” she added.

Rose, 33, set Twitter abuzz when she posted a bottomless photo of herself that showed her pubic hair. The image was quickly removed from her Instagram account. Rose was unbothered by the post being removed, especially since she was still getting the word about her walk out.

Since she posted it Friday, the picture has garnered more than 111,000 likes on Twitter. She was not happy when it was deleted from Instagram, but happy that she was still able to get people talking. “When IG deletes ur fire a-- feminist post but you really don't give a f--- because everyone picked it up already.” It was viewed nearly 4 million times. In the clip, the mother-of-one licked her lips, rolled her eyes and smiled.

The SlutWalk is scheduled for Oct. 1 in Los Angeles.
