Yesterday, protesters in various cities joined the Ukrainian feminist group Femen for an international "topless jihad" to combat oppressive sexism in Muslim communities. The protest was inspired by Amina, the young Tunisian woman who was condemned by her country for posting topless photos of herself on the internet."Our boobs will be stronger than their stones" says a protester. Participants have posted photos from Paris, Milan, San Francisco, Montreal, and more.
