The new world’s tallest building, Beijing’s citizen’s colorful solution for the city’s surreal pollution problem, the priceless last words of famous figures, Patagonia’s disappearing glaciers, an all-female calendar takes a stand for feminism.
Infamous All-Female Calendar Features Not Supermodels, But Intellectuals, Business Leaders, And More
Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli has earned quite a reputation for its annual calendar of nude and semi-nude women released every year since 1964. But this year the company is taking a different route: featuring strong female athletes, intellectuals, and business leaders instead of supermodels. The calendar’s focus for 2016 is to feature women not merely as sexual objects (but don’t think that means no skin is shown). Award-winning photographer Annie Leibovitz’s photographs are in a classic, simple portraiture style highlighting women of “oustanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment.” That means everyone from Amy Schumer to Serena Williams to Yoko Ono.
