See the Oxford University Women's Rugby Team Bare Their Butts for Charity
They take their team motto, "Back Yourself," seriously.

The Oxford University Women's Rugby Football Club (OUWRFC) took their motto "Back Yourself" literally by baring their behinds in a brand new charity calendar. After helping sell the mens team's calendar, the 11 team members decided to shoot their own to support Mind Your Head, Oxford University's mental health campaign.
The calendar was shot with photographer Mark Barnfield on the club's pitch, in the gym, the school's library, and around Oxford. Club president Elizabeth Dubois, a PhD student from Canada, stated the calendar also had a second mission to confront stereotypical images of female rugby players. "We have girls of all shapes and sizes, and studying all types of academic subjects."
Here are some images from the calendar, which is on sale now with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Mind Your Head.
