Ukrainian girls show us how to protest

Today, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a group of Ukrainian women staged this protest:

Now, that’s a different kind of protest than the ones I have been to (for examples of these see here, here, here and here).

The group FEMEN has become famous in Ukraine where they stage regular protests on various social and political issues. Some more examples:

Well, if it helps to attract more people to join a protest, I welcome it as a positive factor.

A question to my readers in Ukraine: Are all your women so sexy interested in politics?

  1. I am wondering how do you find them sexy!! They all have boobies as big as a tennis ball!

  2. Yes, You men!!! And I believe you!

    I’m impressed! Protesting in winter, topless? Shoot, I get goosebumps just looking at them!
    (No, not THOSE kind! ;) )
    And thank you, Maryam, for your comment. Had one of us males made a comment about the .. um … physical attributes of the ladies, I fear we would have been soundly taken to task for being sexist! :D

    Not, no all the girls are so interested in politics…

    Well, Mr. Hermit, there is a deep meaning statement that breast symbolizes. And yes, it is not only about attraction and sexuality as it is about extension of birth life and connection to our true nature and its basic rules.
    (According to people’s driving motives -let it be pain and pleasure- womankind can serve them both.)

  7. Jesmond Micallef says:

    Well, well, nice curves, but also vocal chords and yes – CARS !!

    Something tells me it didn’t have quite the impact they were hoping for.

    These girls are actually part of an Eastern European tradition. The Russian religious sect, the Doukhobors, were well known for their propensity to strip naked to protest unjust government policies. A group of them held many such protest in Canada’s Prairie provinces in the first half of the last century. The only difference was that bot sexes participated in the nude protests. So how about it boys!

  10. Vane says:

    Way to go girls! Them boys must have been hiding something!

  19. I have to vote in the protestors favor. Not because I would do it. Not because I necessarily think it will work. I’m simply tired of the way everyone seems so darn concerned with judging others. Who cares? Their breasts are bigger than mine? Great, good for them. They’re prettier? Fabulous. I’m not working out my “issues” on some complete stranger. Here’s to a world in which we have the luxury and freedom to argue about whether we simply agree with the form of protest–I’d say that’s call for a celebration.

    I don’t see it here, Isabella, but may I steal your comment of “blekh”? It sounds the perfect description of the weather here – over 100 degrees and high humidity. At least we’ve kept the electricity on in our house – most of the area is only just now getting power back on, after almost a week without! Definitely “blekh”!!

    • Yeah, what’s up with that? (it also contained a very important grammatical revision :p) I don’t know where it disappeared to but you are most welcome to it. Everyone seems to be having heat waves. We just got the first forecast of a full week of sun this year! Woot!

    Ukrainian girls are sooooo pretty. And right.

  22. John says:

    I poured out my blessing on them….now I must clean it up.
