Femen are a feminist organisation who started in the Ukraine founded by Anna Hutsol. I’ve put them in this blog because although they’re a protest group they’re combination of toplessness and aggression is very sexy.  They challenge any remaining ideas of women being somehow more gentle and easygoing than men and I think that’s their strongest message. Some of their protests are against the sexual exploitation of women in the Ukraine, they’ve protested a lot against Vladimir Putin and the Russian Orthodox church. They’ve supported persecuted dissidents such as the Egyptian Aliaa Magda Elmahdy and Tunisian Amina Tyler.sasha shevchenko femen
