Police detained two activists of FEMEN near Parliament building
Ukrainian MPs were voting for anti-discriminational amendments to the current Labour Code at that time
The girls tried to undress in front of the Parliament building, while the MPs were voting for notorious anti-discriminational amendments. It was the part of their performance in order to attract attention to the very important political and social issue - discrimination.
FEMEN is a group of topless female activists. The organization became internationally known for organizing controversial topless protests against sex tourism, religious institutions, sexism, homophobia and other social, national and international topics. The amendments to the Code proposed to prohibit any discrimination in employment, including violation of the principle of equal rights and opportunities, direct or indirect restriction of the rights of workers depending on race, color, political, religious and other beliefs, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic, social and foreign origin, age, health, disability, HIV / AIDS, family and property status, family responsibilities, location, membership in trade union or other association of citizens participating in strike, appeal or intend to apply to the courts or other authorities to protect their rights or supporting other workers in defending their rights, linguistic or other grounds not related to the nature of the work or the context of its implementation.
Founded in Ukraine, FEMEN group is now based in Paris. The organization describes itself as "fighting patriarchy in its three manifestations - sexual exploitation of women, dictatorship and religion" and has stated that its goal is "sextremism serving to protect women's rights". FEMEN activists have been regularly detained by police in response to their protests.
