The feminist movement FEMEN originated in Ukraine in 2008. Initially it was declared that the creation movement is a reaction to growing in Ukraine and other Eastern European countries, the sex industry. The movement quickly grew from a local to international, and now operates in many countries (several years ago, the office of FEMEN was founded and in Israel). FEMEN activists in each country choose for their struggle most topics relevant to them (religious bigotry, dictatorships, the ban on abortion, female circumcision, gender discrimination, human trafficking and so on). During their shares, the girls from FEMEN, as a rule, bare Breasts and body painted slogans.
