There was a big debate this week after Kim Kardashian posted a nude selfie on Instagram Sunday night. Many criticized her, but others jumped to her defense and posted nude selfies of their own.

Kardashian posted an essay in response to the criticism that read in part: "It's 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming — it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality.... I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy."

Here & Now's Robin Young examines the debate over nudity online with Femi Oke, host of the Stream on Al Jazeera English. They also take a look at the new all-female "Ghostbusters" movie, and a move to stop women's sanitary products from being taxed.
