Amber Rose Wants Her Son to Grow Up to Be a Feminist

Amber Rose is hoping her son grows up with a profound love and respect for women. The soon-to-be talk show host, who launched the Slut Walk in LA last year to fight the demeaning treatment of women, has continually encouraged women to do what they want with their bodies. And, she’s raising her son to be just like her.

In an interview for PEOPLE, Rose revealed that she’s raising her son Sebastian, whose father is rapper Wiz Khalifia, to respect women and to speak up when women are being harassed. “I’m raising him to be a feminist,” she said, “When my son goes to school and his friend calls a girl a hoe, I want him to be the first person to say, ‘Man, that’s not cool. You don’t talk to women like that,’ that’s very important to me.”
