Femen activists open their first foreign office in Paris

The Ukrainian feminist group, FEMEN, known for their topless public protests, was founded to fight against the sex trade in Ukraine. Now they’re an international organization. On Tuesday, they opened their first foreign office in Paris, and protested there the same day. Known for testing the tolerance of every country they campaign in, FEMEN’s ‘sextremist’ members painted such slogans as “Muslims Let’s get naked”, “I am free,” and “Notre dieu est une femme” (Our God is a woman)” on their bare breasts and arms and paraded through Paris’s predominantly Muslim 18th arrondissement.

With activists across 10 other countries, FEMEN dream of spaces where all members can unite, prepare their campaigns and teach a new generation of female ‘soldiers’. And as more and more recruits join FEMEN, there are plans to set up a ‘training camp’ in Kiev, as well as another in Brazil. Says Inna: “We are bringing a new face, new blood, a new fight to feminism”.
