SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Carmenza Gomez, Colombian Actress: "My whole life I have exhibited my soul through my performances and what I have done in theatre and on TV. I have undressed my soul, my emotions and my feelings and now I think it's very valid to undress my body, because right now my body is the total of the other parts, my soul, my feelings, my emotions, my history." 9. Various of Clara Jaramillo's body being painted STORYLINE: A group of daring women - all over fifty - stripped naked on Monday to pose for a nude calendar in a bid to challenge conventional ideas about beauty. The ten women, from France and Colombia, included actresses, an anthropologist, a human rights activist, a cook and a photographer. Unlike the usual glossy calendars and professional models, these pictures show no silicone or plastic surgery. The models said that the calendar, called "Sin fecha de vencimiento" which means women without expiry date, was an attempt to widen the concept of beauty. Florence Thomas, a French feminist who has lived in Colombia for several years, said the project was all about "rebelliousness" and breaking the "stereotypes of beauty". Colombian actress Carmenza Gomez said that posing for the calendar was a natural thing to do after all her theatre and television performances. "I have undressed my soul, my emotions and my feelings and now I think it's very valid to undress my body, because right now my body is the total of the other parts," she said. The calendar will go on sale in 2007. keyword-unusual You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/34943caa5ea3f353b01b5645e87208d6 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

I am not sure why this video was even posted and for what reason. I am all for power for women and their statements, however this video leaves me thinking that people who can influence the world do not need to shed clothes to do so. Let their individual contributions make this world better. :)
