PARTHENAY, France (AFP) — Twelve farmers from western France and six of their wives have posed in the nude for a charity calendar, claiming to "be fed up to the backteeth with being taken for a load of bumpkins."
"Just because you're a farmer's wife doesn't mean you're a farmer. Of the six women who are on display, there's a vet, some nurses and a beauty-parlour manager," said Patrice Boinot, a 35-year-old cattle farmer.
"This has allowed us to get rid of certain prejudices which some people still have about farmers' wives," said photographer Daniel Mar.
