Pin-up Grrrls in Brooklyn Paper

Maria Elena Buszek, author of Pin-up Grrrls, is quoted extensively in this piece about a new pin-up calendar in The Brooklyn Paper. The calendar is produced by a Brooklyn restaurant, Habana Outpost, and features shots of restaurant employees in pin-up poses. Buszek gives some context to the venture: "According to Buszek (and in contrast to the stereotypes of feminists
as dour and anti-sexuality), the history of pin-ups is actually a
history of feminism.’You saw women taking control of their representation, including the pin-up and including pornography,’ said Buszek.That’s certainly true in the case of Meenan’s pin-up calendar, where all of the women volunteered and chose their own attire."
