Are bare breasts ever a weapon?
Are bare breasts instruments of political protest?
Are bare breasts able to make a direct difference to politics?
FEMEN, a Spanish branch of the feminist protest group founded by Ukrainian Inna Shevchenko, believe that bare breasts represent all of these things.
So, are semi naked protests the way forward for the feminist movement in the 21st century?
Well, I personally don’t think the naked body has anything to do with a protest of any description. I just wonder if it is merely an excuse to get officially naked publicly?
Perhaps the bare breasts detract from the actual message being delivered by the group.
I wonder what percentage of the population actually read the article specifically to discover what these women were protesting for. How many really read it solely for the bare breasts? Ummm, I wonder!
By the way, if you too are finding yourself absorbed by the bare breasts, and have missed the political message, I shall enlighten you – they are protesting against patriarchy.
