Strippers against war? Not quite, but close. Maybe “get naked for peace.”
Nobody is quite sure what to call the wacky antics of a geriatric California artist who has decided to combat America’s military build-up against Iraq by her own bearing of skin. Seventy-two-year-old Donna Sheehan is recruiting friends and fellow peaceniks to spell the words “No War” and “Peace” with their naked bodies.
According to Sheehan, “We are doing this from the heart and from a feeling of desperation. It is a wonderful, physical way of creating a powerful statement”
The movement may have some steam behind it. Montana women posed nude in a snowstorm to protest war, and some English lasses decided to bear it all as a protest against aggression. Nudists of the world, unite!
