Women Protest Topless - Femen Group Gets Publicity for Protests
By John McCormick
A group of activist women in the Ukraine have found a way to bring media and government attention to their non-violent protests - they march and stand topless holding protest signs even in the snow in front of government buildings.
(Warning, adult content on Web site.)
This group is beginning to get a lot of attention (even from CNN today which demonstrates the effectiveness of their method) and certainly some of their protests are targeting important problems.
Of course there is always a concern that the message will be lost in the publicity but this is at least a totally non-violent way to protest and make certain someone pays attention to what they are saying.
