The nominations for Kelly Madison Media’s “Women of the Middle East” come on the heels of major international news coverage regarding the Madisons’ stand on behalf of women’s sexual empowerment. The erotic movie, featuring adult stars in various types of traditional Middle Eastern veils, was the focus of many popular news sites, including Vice.com and Mic.com, which spurred viral coverage of the movie.
