On Saturday, hundreds of men and women gathered in downtown L.A. to participate in the Amber Rose SlutWalk, an event hosted by model Amber Rose that sought to raise awareness of "issues of sexual violence, gender inequality, derogatory labeling and victim blaming," all while re-claiming the word "slut." According to the L.A. Times, the group marched up and down Olive Street, and rallied in Pershing Square.

Rose's mother showed up to support her daughter, too: her sign is in reference to when Rose's ex-boyfriend Kanye West told Power 105.1's show The Breakfast Club, "It's very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that's been with Amber Rose…I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim [Kardashian]."

Social media blew up with photos and videos from the attendees.

It wasn't just women in attendance. Male allies showed up to lend their support to the cause.

This won't be the last Rose-helmed SlutWalk—her nonprofit, the Amber Rose Foundation, has set up a GoFundMe that will "support our foundation and groups and organizations of women who have been subject to slut shaming, a lack of implication of double standards, sexual assault, and even rape."
