FEMEN Hits Stockholm

Posted: Jul. 2nd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
FEMEN in Stockholm

FEMEN, the indomitable and fierce women's rights activist group, targeted a mosque in Stockholm for the next iteration of their ongoing global protests, this time a demonstration of solidarity for Egypt's women and a general opposition to Sharia Law. Whether or not Stockholm was the best venue for their protest is up to question, but their passion and dedication most certainly isn't.

Three feminist activists from the radical protest group Femen staged a topless protest inside a Stockholm mosque on Saturday before they were led away by police.

The women burst into the mosque and tore off their black robes to bare their breasts, which were emblazoned with slogans such as “No sharia in Egypt and the world” and “My body is mine, not somebody’s honor”.

The women shouted “Free Women”, “No Sharia” and “No Oppression”.
