Amber Rose, a.ka. Captain Save A Hoe, has been organizing an annual Slutwalk in downtown L.A. for the last three years in an effort to bring awareness to slut shaming. It’s sort of a Take Back The Night walk, except with a lot more sex workers and pornstars.

And so it begins #arsw17 #captiansaveahoe ✊?✊?✊?✊?✊?

This year, Maggie West, an L.A. based photographer and Danny Wylde‘s girlfriend, took several neon portraits of Slutwalk attendees for an art installation called “98.”

The piece, “98,” will resemble a stained glass ceiling, featuring instead of the usual saints and martyrs seen in religious stained glass work, 40 images of modern womanhood shot in West’s inimitable style. “Rather than be celebrated for their purity, this piece pays tribute to women’s freedom to sexually express themselves and protest sexual violence,” West says in her artist’s statement. “The title is taken from a Department of Justice statistic that says every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted.”

Yup, so the world is a fucked up place, but at least we get to fight oppression with sexy pictures of our favorite sluts. I’ve never liked using the word “slut” what with its pejorative definition, but if sluts everywhere are taking it back and making it work for themselves, I’m all for it!!!

Long live Amber Rose and her Slutwalk!
