Femen’s Topless Jihad

Wow! Hordes of topless women with slogans painted across their chests as members of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe. They called for a “topless jihad” and The Atlantic has a bunch of highly entertaining photos of the semi-naked protesters and the police who had to, um, man-handle them!

The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words “I own my body; its not the source of anyones honor” written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisias “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice,” reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic. Tyler has since gone quiet, leading some to fear for her safety. Below are images from Femens protests today in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France.    A warning, nearly every photo depicts nudity, and most contain offensive language.  Ogle and learn more at Femen Stages a Topless Jihad – In Focus – The Atlantic.

Oh and here is my other favorite. You go girls!

Take that, Tunisia!
