Femen Protesters Expelled From Turkey For Topless Protest

Turkish authorities have expelled members of a Ukrainian feminist group from the country after they staged a topless protest to mark International Women's Day on March 8.

Turkey's Anatolia news agency reports four women from the Femen rights group were placed on a return flight to Kyiv on March 9, one day after they were detained by police for gathering topless in a popular tourist area in Istanbul and chanting slogans to protest domestic violence and acid attacks against women in Turkey.

A member of the group told AP that the protest was meant to highlight the sufferings of women in Muslim countries.

The Femen demonstration came as the Turkish parliament approved a package of laws aimed at better protecting women and children from abuse.

They should of highlighted the suffering of women in Jewish countries, such as gender based buses and 8 year old girls being attacked for not being modestly dressed. They would of gotten a job in a brothel, along side sex slaves from their own country instead of being humilated and deported.
