Femen Stages a 'Topless Jihad'

This is just fantastic.  The women of Femen are doing what most politicians are afraid to do:  Getting right into the faces of Muslim supremacists over the horrific Islamic treatment of women. 

This is exactly what needs to be done to bring the barbaric treatment of women (and not just Muslim women) to the public forum.  For too long, political correctness and the fear of being branded an "Islamophobe" have neutered Western politicians.  Maybe this will wake up women’s rights groups to take a stand against Muslim buying and selling of women and suppressing them in every way.

WARNING:  Nudity and "strong" language at link.  But lots of guts.


Femen Stages a 'Topless Jihad'
Apr 4, 2013

Earlier today, members of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe as they called for a "topless jihad." 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; it's not the source of anyone's honor" written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia's "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 Femen's protests today in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France. A warning, nearly every photo depicts nudity, and most contain offensive language.
