But who’s to say that FEMEN doesn’t represent feminism? Unlike Islam, Feminism isn’t based upon a holy book, or common reference text, so who decides what is Feminism, and what isn’t?
However, the intellectual tradition of feminism follows a common principle/creed, the ‘liberation of the individual woman’ (e.g. Individualism), and therefore it would naturally conclude that the rules and restrictions of religion, inhibit women’s freedom to define their own morals and values. In fact, the public display of nudity by FEMEN is a protest against the Islamic doctrine of public modesty – which Feminism considers to be an unjust restriction of women’s ‘freedon’. Under Feminism, if women can choose to wear what they want, and ‘their body belongs to them’, how are FEMEN going against Feminism by choosing to go topless?
