Exiled Iranian women pose nude in video calling for more sexual freedom

London, Mar 9 (ANI): A group of Iranian women have stripped off for a new video calling for more sexual freedom for women in their native country.

 

The women, who are living in exile in Europe, have bared all in front of the camera as each of them deliver a defiant message.

 

Their slogans include 'I believe in the equality of women and men' and 'my thoughts, my body, my choice'.

 

The video has been produced in the hope of boosting sales of the Nude Photo Revolutionary Calendar, which was released on Thursday to coincide with International Women's Day.

 

The calendar has been dedicated to an Egyptian activist who posted a full-length photo of herself on her blog last year in a stand against sexual discrimination in Islam.

 

The move by 20-year-old university student, Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, sparked outrage in the Middle East and she was bombarded by thousands of insults, with some denouncing her as a 'prostitute'.

 

However, Maryam Namazie, who produced the calendar, said nudity was an important weapon in the fight against oppression.

 

"Islamism and the religious right are obsessed with women's bodies," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling The International Business Times.

 

"They demand that we be veiled, bound, and gagged. In the face of this assault, nudity breaks taboos and is an important form of resistance," she said.

 

The film and the calendar also show support for Golshifteh Farahani, an actress who has been banished from her home country of Iran because she posed nude in a French news magazine.

 

The 28-year-old, who has starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe, says she was contacted by the Iranian government and told her not to return home. (ANI)
