Summary
A profile of FEMEN, a Ukrainian feminist activist group who garnered attention for their frequent use of topless protests. "Outraged by the world's image of Ukrainian women as either brides for sale or commodities of sex tourism, Femen bare their breasts in protest to disrupt this perception and agitate against these brutal patriarchal forces. ..."Ukraine is not a brothel" offers an intimate glimpse into the world's most provocative feminist organization. A movement that began in the snow-filled streets of a corrupt, post-Soviet Ukraine, Femen's naked war against patriarchy is gaining momentum across Europe, but before they take the world by storm, these bold and beautiful women must first come to terms with the sometimes contradictory forces and motives that powered their movement's rise to international prominence"--Container. In Ukrainian and Russian with English subtitles.
