Nude Revolutionary Calander

Last November, atheist Egyptian blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahady posted a nude photo of herself on her blog, tweeting and tagging it #NudePhotoRevolutionary. She and her boyfriend were then criminally charged with “violating morals, inciting indecency and insulting Islam” — spurring activists to “take back the nude photo,” as it were. When blogger and activist Maryam Namazie got wind of this, she decided to take on the project of the Nude Photo Revolutionary Calendar — and stand in solidarity with Elmahady.

While Elmahady’s initial post was a response to the Islamic belief that women should be covered in public, the calendar aims to defy the extreme religious right’s insistence on policing women’s bodies in general.
