Nude Photo Revolutionary Calendar FTW
So yesterday was International Women's Day (woo) and to celebrate the release of the Nude Photo Revolutionary Calendar is here! Yay!
In case you've forgotten (or never knew), #NudePhotoRevolutionary started when Egyptian blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahdy posted a nude photo of herself on her blog, in protest of the rampant sexism and violence against women in her country.
In response, she received threats of violence and all-round condescention for her decision to freely express herself and protest the repressive culture in which she lives.
In solidarity, women around the world decided to emulate her example and produce this stunning calendar which celebrates the female form (of all shapes and sizes), free speech and women's rights.
Even my broke ass bought a copy, so go get yourself one of these! Hang it proudly on your wall and whenever someone comes over and asks "?!" explain the revolution, spread the word, fight for change.
For a free pdf version of the calendar there is also this link BUT CAREFUL it downloads automatically and opens in your pdf viewer, in case you're reading this at work
Oh, and while we're having fun, I thought I'd include this picture too, cause I just love it
