Nude protest for Intl Women’s Day

Today, 8 March, International Women’s Day, Amina Sboui, Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, Solmaz Vakilpour, Safia Lebdi, Meriam Russel and myself protested nude in support of women’s rights in the Middle East and North Africa at the Louvre in Paris.

I didn’t want to just hold the Islamic regime of Iran’s flag so I cut out the Allah in the centre of the flag and let it show my vagina instead. Much better, don’t you think?

Below are some photos, video coverage and links. We were arrested when 100 police converged on the area and took us away. We were released after several hours. I managed to catch my Eurostar train 1 minute before it took off with the help of Waleed Al Husseini wearing “Free the Nipple” t-shirt Amina gave us each.

Long live International Women’s Day…
