Update: Ukrainians Still Cross...

Femen leader gets asylum in France after cross felling stunt made her homeland Ukraine very dangerous


Link Here 9th July 2013

Inna Shevchenko caused outrage among many in Ukraine when she used a chainsaw to fell a large cross in the centre of Kiev. She says she has now been granted political asylum in France.

She said the cross felling was in sympathy with the Russian punk band Pussy Riot who were prosecuted with the encouragement of the Russian church.

She has said she received death threats after cutting down the cross, which was, according to Ukrainian media, a monument to victims of Stalin's repression in the 1920s and 1930s.

Ms Shevchenko fled to France, where she has set up a branch of the controversial feminist movement and mounted a series of stunts, in which Femen members bare their breasts in protest.

Update: Femen makes topless protest at muslim conference...

Maybe the usual silly protest, but you have got to admire their bravery as they inevitably get a good kicking for their efforts

Two members of the protest group Femen have been arrested after disrupting a controversial Muslim conference in Paris.

The topless women, with the words Nobody makes me submit , painted on their chests -- stormed the stage at the event in Pontoise.

The stunt saw the women, themselves of muslim origin, shout feminist slogans in Arabic and French as two Imams addressed the audience, before they were physically removed from the stage by a number of men, who were seen to be giving the girls a good kicking.

The women burst onto the stage as two Imams addressed the audience. Femen leader Inna Shevchenko says the activists received death threats from the audience. Shevchenko told Huffington Post UK the protesters were from Muslim families and had raised their voices in disgust at this public hate speech. She said:

The Imams were very careful in their speech this time as the public outrage by the event was loud. The Imam was addressing the question of whether women should be beaten or not and said that as Mohammed didn't beat women, the men shouldn't do it as well.

Just a minute later, Femen activists were brutally beaten up by the organisers of the event on the same stage.

The conference, which reportedly addressed the role of women in Islam, was subject to a Change.org petition calling for it to be cancelled. The petition states guests included: Fundamentalist preachers such as Abu Anas Nader, known for having legitimised marital rape and the wider submission of women.

According to the Telegraph the women were released after being questioned by prosecutors who will continue to investigate the incident. It reports the conference organisers say they will press charges against them. However there is no mention of charges against the men who assaulted the girls.

 

 

Obituary: Oksana Shachko...

Founder of the topless protestors of Femen dies aged 31


Link Here 25th July 2018
Few women outside the genre of pornography have bared their breasts as often and for such good reason as 31-year-old Ukrainian activist Oksana Shachko. As one of the original three founders of the activist group Femen, she has bared her bosom to popes and princes, to Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel to protest policies and ideologies.

Shachko's body was discovered in her apartment in Paris on Monday, and activist friends and family say they believe she committed suicide. Friends who knew Shachko well told The Daily Beast that she lived in a labyrinth of painful situations--personal issues, pressure from from her home country and from the reality she found herself in in France--and that she was suffering.

Shachko founded Femen with Anna Hutsol and Sacha Shevchenko in April 2008, when they were just 17 and looking for an outlet for their anger. Rather than joining those in the streets with Molotov cocktails and glass bottles, they used their sexuality in what has since been defined as sextremism protests aiming for a complete victory over the patriarchy. She was the first to pull off her shirt and show her bare breasts to a crowd during a political action on Ukraine's Independence Day, Aug. 24, 2009.

The women inspired a global movement of bare-breasted women to write slogans across their chests and put a ring of flowers in their hair to make a point
