For the last year throughout the Middle East (and beyond) debate has raged as to whether topless protests constitute a valid form of protest and whether actions like this do more harm than good, by reinforcing rather than weakening conservative forces. Let's me be very clear about this. These actions are a legitimate form of protest.

Femen might intend to liberate the women of Islam, but their over-simplification of Muslim women's experiences not only alienates this group, it offends them.

On Friday 12 of April Femen's topless Jihad reached Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki with the question: "Where is Amina?" The president was keeping silent, hiding himself behind dozen of security guards. Some time after I got a telephone call: "Inna, I am here. It's me, Amina!".

Muslimah Pride: We Reject Femens Islamophobic and Neo-Colonialist Crusade to Save Us

If Femen really want to help Muslim women they should address the fact that for far too long now, Muslim women have been marginalised, bombed, raped, killed, and enslaved by men from the western world. They should work within their own countries to try and subvert future wars against Muslim countries and help break down barriers. Or perhaps they should stick to trying to liberate women in the west.

Central to Femen's European cause is anti-Islamic sentiment. They claim that religion is evil - that Islam is morally equivalent to fascism. Last week, the group orchestrated protests in France and Germany against Islam which they called 'topless Jihad Day' and declared a 'new Arab Spring'.

Femen's International Topless Jihad Day

I have written about my concerns with Femen's brand of feminism before as I believe their message is obscured by the medium of their protest, which conforms to the normalised construction of the Patriarchal Fuckability Test. Feminism cannot succeed using the same old patriarchal discourse which oppresses us. Baring breasts is a normal occurrence in our pornified culture.
