BOOBS NOT BIBLES: Pope’s Resignation Greeted by Flashing Breasts in Notre Dame Cathedral
A group of feminist activists stripped off their shirts and flashed their breasts in the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in celebration of Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation.
They were members of Femen, a Ukraine-based feminist group that has spread around the world and that frequently organizes topless protests. Femen has protested abortion restrictions in the Ukraine, and has also protested in support of the Russian band Pussy Riot. They have also staged anti-rape demonstrations in France.
Agence France Press reported the protesters shouted “Pope no more!” “No more homophobe” and “Bye bye Benedict!”
