Caitlin Stacey says magazine dropped her interview for not posing nude
The Herself.com creator and actor has launched a Twitter tirade, unveiling emails about why her interview was cancelled

Australian actor and feminist Caitlin Stacey has made international headlines by revealing a magazine cancelled her interview after she refused to pose nude.

The ex-Neighbours star is well-known for appearing nude on her Herself.com website, and for her involvement with the ‘Free the Nipple’ campaign, but she says this shouldn’t negate her right to say no when near-nudity is not on her own terms.

 Stacey took to social media calling out Good Weekend’s commissioning editor Ben Naparstek, who cited ‘downsizing’ as their reason for removing the interview. Stacey denies this insisting it was all systems go until she refused to pose in scantily clad outfits.

The irony is not lost on supporters of Stacey who have taken to Twitter to support her. Hersef.com launched under a banner of positive self-image, with women celebrating their naked bodies, and going ‘nude for feminism’.

Meanwhile Neparstek has stated that it wasn’t necessarily Stacey’s unwillingness to pose nude, but that he decided Herself.com wasn’t currently very relevant.

Do you think posing nude for feminism can work?
