'Topless jihad' planned against Tunisian clerics
April 04, 2013
Femen, the Ukrainian feminist group, has announced a “topless jihad” in support of a Tunisian woman who has become the target of a fatwa after she posted a topless picture of herself on a Facebook page.
Amina Tyler, a 19-year-old Tunisian, posted a photo in which the words “my body is mine and no one else’s” were printed on her bare skin. Femen, a group whose members have gained attention by appearing topless, plans a “holy war of topless” against Islamic officials who called for punishment of the young woman.
