More Wall Street women, swimsuit-style

February 6, 2009

We made our share of waves when we reported last year that Playboy was recruiting women laid off from banking and finance jobs to pose nude in the adult entertainment magazine. The photos and accompanying article were supposed to hit in February, though we hear that it’s been pushed back to May.

Meanwhile, we got this press release from More magazine, published by Meredith Corp:


WHAT: Did you recently leave your Wall Street job and are curious to explore a new side of yourself? More magazine has an opportunity for you! More is giving all former Wall Street women ages 40-60 the chance to appear in its annual “Real-Women” June issue swimsuit feature. If you’re looking to trade your power suit for a swimsuit in the only lifestyle magazine for women over 40, this is your chance. Check out for more details.

HOW: Women should email a full-length photo and headshot, as well as a brief description of their last Wall Street job and why they left, to Women must be in the NY tri-state area and available for a photo shoot in NYC at the end of February.

WHEN: Submissions will be accepted until February 20th.

WHO: NY tri-state area women 40-60 who have recently left Wall Street jobs.

How come no one offers this kind of thing to journalists?

Wives and mothers should stay home and take care of their home and their kids. Otherwise, they contribute to the ruin of our country.

It is another silly stunt to take advantage. Sex is the best therapy during crisis.
