Although I know that the people over at feminist organisation, FEMEN are quite well known for the good work that they do for gender equality, but to be honest I’m rather flummoxed by this one. Last week a FEMEN protester disrupted a nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City. The topless activist, who had ‘God is a Woman’ written on her torso, stole a statue of baby Jesus before the Vatican police were able to intervene and detain her. FEMEN say they are firmly atheist, stating that organised religion reinforces a whole bunch of ideologies that just put women down in general – I say, they make really great viral videos.
Feminists, can’t live with them, can’t live without them I guess?
