May 22, 2013
A young woman was arrested in Tunisia on May 19 after she spray-painted the name of a feminist group on the wall of a mosque.
Amina Tyler was jailed when she wrote “Femen” on the exterior of a mosque in the town of Kairouan. Femen is an international group whose members have drawn attention by appearing topless in public; Tyler was fully clothed.
