Background story

Kiev, Ukraine

Inna Shevchenko (21) is a leader of Femen, a Ukrainian protest group comprising almost exclusively young women, which organizes topless demonstrations against such issues as sex tourism, the sex industry, and internet marriage brokering. They counter accusations that their provocative methods undermine their own movement’s values with the claim that if they staged simple protests with banners, their voice would not be heard.
