Amber Rose is undoubtedly a confident and powerful woman.

Following Kanye West's Twitter attack on Wednesday, in which he referred to Amber as a "stripper", the beauty shared a poignant essay about being a woman in the entertainment industry.

Considering Kanye and even her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa have shamed her sexualized image numerous times before, the public message was definitely deserved. Hopefully this won't be the last time the momma speaks out!

Commenting on the double standard between men and women, Amber shared the following anecdote:

"After my ex-husband Wiz Khalifa and I got a divorce, I'd go out for a date at a restaurant like any normal single human and people would say, 'Man, she's such a ho. She's out at restaurants with guys.' Then they would see my ex-husband with a bunch of women. They would say, 'He's the man! That's so cool.' So when I went on a date, I'm a whore, and when he's piling girls in a car, he's the man? There's something wrong here."

How unfair! As long as Rose feels happy and safe with her choices, then that should be celebrated… not demonized!

The self-made woman added:

"People would actually say things like, 'Who would ever love you? You were a stripper. Why are you in relationships?' And I used to feel like I had to explain that maybe it was because I'm a good person. But I realized that I can't make everyone believe. And I can't talk to everyone and tell them who I really am. They're still going to have their own opinions. If you know me, you love me. If you don't know me, you might love me, but you might not—and that's cool. And you know what? Now I sleep like a baby at night."

Preach, girl! All you need to worry about is YOU and your gorgeous baby boy!

A.R. ended her inspirational essay with an emotional PSA:

"So please: Before you judge someone—especially another woman—put yourself in her shoes and also look at your past. That's what a lot of women fail to do. They're so quick to call another girl names, but it's like: You know what? There may have been a time where you looked back and said, 'I probably shouldn't have done that.' Does that make you a ho? No, it makes you a human."

Well said.

We're just glad Amber was able to organize a "slut walk" back in October and that Wiz eventually apologized for insinuating she was a wh*re. Every small step counts!
