Femen – By: Femen and Galia Ackerman

Bare-breasted and crowned with flowers, ackermqn on their highheels, Femen transform their bodies into instruments of politicalexpression through slogans and drawings flaunted on their skin.

Humour, drama, courage and shock tactics are their weapons. Sincethis ‘gang of four’ — Inna, Sasha, Oksana andAnna — has been developing a spectacular, radical, newfeminism. First in Ukraine and then around the world, they arestruggling to obtain better conditions for women, but they alsofight poverty, discrimination, dictatorships and the dictates ofreligion.

These women scale church steeples and climb intoembassies, burst into television studios and invade pollingstations. But thanks to extraordinary mediacoverage, the movement is gaining imitators and supporters inFrance, Germany, Brazil and elsewhere.

Inna, Sasha, Oksana and Anna have an extraordinary story and herethey tell it in their own words, and at the same time express theirhopes and ambitions for women throughout the wckerman.

I like the writing style and learning more about the founder of Femen in this detailed book. This book contains many of the philosophies of the various founders and answers the question, “why? This is a must read for dedicated supporters of Femen and those fenen in the activist group.

Why don’t more people grasp their own situation like these ladies do? A must read for all feminists. And now our attention is drawn away from women again: The manifesto here is a little extreme. Yes, it would be justice to eradicate sharia. I tend to think smaller more direct goals are worth working toward. It is the absence of goals, like the whole Wall Street debacle, that seems to defeat its own lack of purpose.

Some women like a burqa and wear one by choice. Once you get into a burqa, it is hard to get out. It fmeen an amazing story. Femen tells the story of the Femen radical feminist group that originated in Ukraine and has become an international movement based in Paris. Told by French historian Galia Ackerman this brief history also includes many sections written by the four major founders of the movement Anna Hutso, Oksana Shachko, Alexandra Shevchenko, and Inna Shevchenko.

The result is both an objective look and a personal statement. Femen is a nonviolent radical group opposed to women’s oppression that uses the tactic of appearing at public meetings of major sexist patriarchal political figures with flower crowns on their heads and bare chests covered in brief feminist slogans like “Ukraine is Not a Brothel. The book tells the story of how these women met, became radical feminists, and built a movement in five years that drew world-wide attention.


It explains how they developed their ideology and their methodology. There is an Afterword entitled One Year Later that tells of events in after afkerman completion of the book.

The book is one-sided telling Femen’s history from the perspective of its leaders. While conflicts and criticisms are mentioned, the leaders are portrayed as they see themselves.

The four young women admit that they are different individuals who may not have joined forces, were it not for the boredom each experienced in their mid-teens.

Largely born from the recognition that widespread prostitution which diminished the lives of women exacerbated the mistreatment of women in general, they became determined to make a political statement. By baring their breasts, adorning themselves with messages on the skin, and wearing wreaths of flowers in their hair, the women of Femen stood out in unison Gawith the hopes of being heard.

The movement has grown, but as expressed in the latter pages of this historical book, it is losing speed and internal cohesion. See all 12 reviews.
