Like it or not, topless women gathering en masse are going to garner some attention. Whether meeting to fight for the right to gather topless en masse or trying to make a different point, it’s pretty much guaranteed to make the news.
Anna Gutsol of the feminist Ukrainian group Femen is speaking out on the necessity of such, uh, big measures in demonstrations on issues ranging from gender discrimination to prostitution legislation … as opposed to those who just “go out and demonstrate and set up tents”.
From Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty:
“Topless protests are probably the strongest and most effective form of peaceful and nonviolent protests to attract attention. You can throw a grenade, go on hunger strike, blow something up or shoot someone. Or you can go out topless,” Gutsol says.
