Femen / Galia Ackerman
Femen is an activist group of feminists. The publication, Femen , is a colourful snapshot of the lives of the four founding members of the group, fiercely intelligent and brave young women, who have become self-appointed soldiers in an international war against the slavery of women. Within this, Femen identify a triad of oppression against women: religion, the sex industry and dictatorship. Femen protests are thus regularly documented in the media due to the controversial and striking image of the topless women, who are often accompanied by colourful and distinctive displays or performance art. Considering that the women are fighting against patriarchy, exposing their breasts could be read as a somewhat superficial or hypocritical endeavor, especially when the reader comes to the book, or across divisive images in the media, without much knowledge of the group or their history. The remarkable story of the women behind Femen led journalist Galia Ackerman to interview the four founding members of the group, and the book Femen was the result of hours of discussion.
