Extraordinary news coming from what appears to be a former sexist icon: the Pirelli Calendar. Known for displaying sexy models on nude and almost-nude pictures, the Calendar is being produced by Annie Leibovitz and promises to be revolutionary: instead of naked models, it will bring influential women to look at every month of 2016.

The teaser video gives us a sample of what’s to come:

Among the influential names that will be featured in the calendar are Patty Smith, Amy Schumer, Serena Williams and Yoko Ono.

Very interesting to see Pirelli going on that direction. It shows that the feminist movement in the US is influencing discussions about women objectification. Hopefully, the Calendar will get the attention it deserves and the bet will pay off for Pirelli. Influential women all around the world are thankful for it!
