Delacroix’s Liberty Leading The People, considered one of the finest images in the Wikimedia Commons, is Lady Liberty. Supposedly the painting inspired the Statue of Liberty.
FEMEN, bare breasted trouble makers ? Strutting around naked and causing trouble, what is their problem ?
“Early feminists fought for the right for women to wear trousers and jeans and won. Now we can wear trousers and jeans, but when a woman speaks in parliament, do the men listen? It’s still a world dominated by men, where women are slaves and where women still do not earn the same or have the same opportunities. So we have to start again. It’s the clothing fight all over again.”
Why this centuries old war against women ? The life givers of the human race ?
Maybe the FEMEN women are not perfect persons (we all are human) but their cause is just.
What percentage of the women on this planet have equal rights, equal, pay, … ?
A very small percentage. Equal pay, equal rights are on the books but they really exist totally in very few places. Not in France, not in the US, not in the Ukraine – birthplace of FEMEN.
But why do they have to act-up so much ? If they wait and work quietly sooner or later women will get equality.
Don’t believe it ! I know what Dr. Martin Luther King would have said about that.
These women have balls ! Being arrested for protesting against sexism and protesting against what they argue are moves being made by the Ukrainian government to legalize prostitution during the EURO 2012 championships.
The problem is huge even if we refuse to acknowledge it.
FEMEN -All Lady Liberties would be proud.
