Emily Ratajkowski first rose to prominence in the music video for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”, which became a number one song in 2013 and drew controversy for its sexist content.
It was only the start for the American model and actress, who would become a strong voice for women who want to express their sexuality, as she continues to take a stand on Feminism.
She was among the first to defend Khloe Kardashian, who drew sharp criticisms for posting her nude selfie on Instagram in March saying, “Women have the right to express their sexuality and share their bodies however they choose.”
She also added, “A woman can be seeking attention and also make a statement. They don’t need to be mutually exclusive.”
She’s become popular for her sexy videos and photographs published in popular magazines, and her stance on such issues have been supported by many, but well-disputed, too, as one would expect regarding such sensitive issues.
In the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar where she appears nude on horseback, British journalist Piers Morgan tweeted “Do you want me to buy you some clothes? You look freezing.”
Just as we imagine Morgan smirking behind a computer or mobile phone, the actress shot back quickly with “I don’t need clothes as much as you need a press.”
Ratajkowski is ranked in many magazines as among the most desirable women in the world. She promotes body positivity, and she’s so hot right now she got Piers Morgan easily burned.
In an interview with famed author and feminist Naomi Wolf, Ratajkowski said, “The world should not be exclusive of the ideal body. It has to include all ideals, all bodies.”
Asked if there’s still fear in society and contempt for female, sexuality she replied, “You know when Lena Dunham takes her clothes off, she gets flack, but it’s also considered brave; when Justin Bieber takes his shirt off, he’s a grown-up. But when a woman who is sexual takes off her top, it plays into something.”
