8. 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."

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.

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. :)
This video by the CBC (Canada’s equivalent of PBS) explains a lot about Free-Range Kids!
What is “Free-Range Kids”? You have been dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” by the media. How did you earn this title? Were you a Free Range kid? How can you tell if a kid IS “Free-Range”? What prompted you to found the Free Range Kids movement? What is a helicopter parent? Why were our parents different from today’s parents? Your new book has a section titled “The A-Z review of everything you might be worried about” in which you debunk many parental fears. Did you come across any particularly outrageous parental concerns? You’ve offered readers a number of “Free Range Commandments,” one of which is “Fail!” But we don’t want our kids to fail…do we?
You are raising your kids in New York City, is it harder to be a Free Range parent in the city? You have experienced the media from all angles, as a newspaper columnist, a news consumer and most recently as the sensational subject of a media storm. Has your view of the media changed as a result of this? What should we do to liberate our kids without going crazy with worry? What is “Free-Range Kids”? Free-Range Kids is a commonsense approach to parenting in these overprotective times. You have been dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” by the media. How did you earn this title? In 2008, I let my then-9-year-old ride the subway by himself. He’d been asking us — my husband and me — to please take him someplace and let him find his way home by himself. So my husband and I discussed this. Our boy knows how to read a map, he speaks the language and we’re New Yorkers. We’re on the subway all the time.That’s how it came to be that one sunny Sunday, after lunch at McDonald’s, I took him to Bloomingdales — and left him in the handbag department.I didn’t leave him unprepared, of course! I gave him a map, a MetroCard, quarters for the phone and $20 for emergencies. Bloomingdale’s sits on top of a subway station on our local line, and it’s always crowded with shoppers. I believed he’d be safe. I believed he could figure out his way. And if he needed to ask someone for directions — which it turns out he did — I even believed the person would not think, “Gee, I was about to go home with my nice, new Bloomingdale’s shirt. But now I think I’ll abduct this adorable child instead.”
