Author of How to Be a Bad Bitch, hostess of Slut Walk and now, feminist poster girl.

Amber Rose is quickly becoming a feminist icon.

In Paper magazine’s Winter 2015 issue, Rose has been styled as a number of feminist icons, from Gloria Steinem, Rosie the Riveter, Susan B. Anthony and Dorothy Pitman Hughes.

In an interview with Paper, Rose explains when she began identifying as a feminist.

"I would look on [Wiz's] Instagram and he would have pictures of all these women all over him… and then I would post a picture of me and my son. And people would be like, 'Does your son know that his mother's a whore?'" said Rose.

"I guess what I want with our generation is to have it not be that way," she said.

"Like, all of us as women, let's just stick together and look out for each other.”
