Femen-Aktivistinnen haben gestern in ganz Europa gegen die Einweisung der 19jährigen Amina protestiert, die in Tunesien für die radikalfeministische Truppe trommelte.

Earlier today, members of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe as they called for a "topless jihad." The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words "I own my body; it's not the source of anyone's honor" written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia's "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice," reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic. Tyler has since gone quiet, leading some to fear for her safety. Below are images from Femen's protests today in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France.

Femen Stages a 'Topless Jihad'

[update] Ziemlich interessante Entwicklung: Muslim women send message to Femen – Counter-protest launched against 'Topless Jihad Day'. (Danke Andrej!)

The thing is, many Muslim women are indeed oppressed, just like many non-muslim women around the world. Patriarchy is a global problem, and I will not deny the misogyny in my culture. However, please, do not insult me, my intelligence, my color, my heritage and my body, and please don't do it because you think you're 'saving' me. There are many Muslim feminists in all Muslim countries, a feminist's job should be solidarity, amplifying voices of local feminists, not imagining they don't exist. Femen is simply very euro-centric, racist and colonialist. I haven't yet seen a black Femen protester, they are racist because they amplify European ideals of beauty; white, skinny, and young. I can't believe this isn't more obvious to people.

Personally, Femen, shut the fuck up, and don't claim that you speak for me, or anybody else. Stop dictating women that they need to be nude to be free, that's just as bad as men dictating them to be covered.
