Nudes for the Holidays: Paypal Problem Fixed

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Debbie says: Thanks to our intrepid Webmaster, Paul Novitski, and Laurie’s efforts, the Paypal buttons on the ad to the right of this post now work perfectly. Please think about who on your holiday list would enjoy Women En Large and Familiar Men.

Thanksgiving 2009

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Laurie and Debbie say: There’s no doubt that 2009 has been a difficult year, but it still has a lot to celebrate, appreciate, and be thankful for. Last year, we said “We have a sane man coming in to the American presidency. We have a smart man coming into the American presidency. We have the […]

Nudes for the Holidays: Paypal problem

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Debbie says: If you wanted to order Women En Large or Familiar Men for the holidays, please bear with us. Our Paypal account is having troubles and isn’t usable at the moment. If you want to order now, please email, or you may find it easier to wait until Paypal is fixed. We’ll put […]

Nudes for the Holidays

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

Laurie and Debbie say: We had a such wonderful response to last year’s holiday sale of Laurie’s books of photography (with Debbie’s text), that we thought we’d offer the same price again this year. It means a lot to us that Nudes for the Holidays pleased so many people. Women En Large: Images of Fat […]

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Marlene says: I’m not much for holidays. I don’t really care about auspicious dates. I give holiday and birthday gifts in the more-or-less right part of the year, but rarely on the right day. I have usually ignored Valentine’s Day. I think Halloween is for amateurs. I spent a few years trying hard to reclaim […]

Blackface/ Colorface: A Face of Racism

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Laurie says: I had a show and then got sick so I’ve been out of touch for a while.  I just become aware of the way blackface/colorface issues have surfaced in the last few days. When I saw the French Vogue with white models in blackface and then last week’s America’s Next Top Model in colorface I […]

Predatory Health Care

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Lynne Murray says: I am very proud of Marilyn Wann, Linda Bacon and many other fat activists whose refusal to shut up and be stigmatized has made it possible for the New York Times to seriously consider Health at Every Size in light of the way fat people have been demonized in debates on health […]

In Memory of Photographer Roy DeCarava

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Laurie says: Roy DeCarava died recently. He was 89. His work has always been important to me. I was lucky to have grown up in New York City in the 50’s and so I saw it then (although he didn’t received the attention he deserved until relatively late in life). I continued to see his work […]

Everyone Likes Panties. Don’t They?

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Dorian Katz is a sometimes writer, sometimes performer, full time visual artist and a troublemaker. She is also my girlfriend. Even though she’s my girlfriend, you can probably have some panties she’s worn, if you like. I suppose I should explain that. She’s currently working on a project that involves panties; hers, yours, friends’, strangers’. […]

Babies? or Baby Women?

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Debbie says: In the 1970s heyday of the late 20th century resurgence of feminism, a very famous Doonesbury cartoon showed feminist Joanie Caucus proud and happy because one of her daycare charges describes a newborn sister as a “baby woman.” I don’t think cartoonist Trudeau was thinking 35 years ahead to these two products for […]
