Actress and stand-up comedian Amy Schumer has a new special coming to Netflix this month called Growing.

Netflix describes the upcoming special on its show page:

"Amy Schumer spills on her new marriage, personal growth, making a baby and her mom's misguided advice in a special that's both raunchy and sincere."

Given the subject of the special, Schumer decided to share a promo poster to Instagram and Twitter on International Women's Day.

The poster draws definite inspiration from the "We Can Do It" World War II poster of Rosie the Riveter by J Howard Miller, and portrays pregnancy as empowering.

Schumer has been quite open about her pregnancy, and her exposed baby bump in the promo reinforces this idea that pregnancy isn't something shameful that needs to be hidden.

Quite a few people loved the poster, and the encouraging message that all bodies are beautiful.



One woman shared similar pregnancy photos.

Others were excited to watch the new special.

Some were also looking forward to Amy's future endeavors.


Schumer's special will be available to watch on Netflix starting March 19th.

The rule of thumb when eating fast food is very simple: put on the blinders, enjoy the meal, and try not to do it too often.

But what if you work in the kitchen?

In that case, there's simply no escaping a complete understanding of the several horrors that each assembled burger or french fry encounters on its way to that front counter.
