A topless feminist protest was held at Orsay museum in Paris on Sunday after a young woman claimed she was denied entrance because her boobs in a low-cut dress had “shocked” an agent
Topless feminists joined a protest at a museum after a woman was barred because she was showing “too much” cleavage.
Jeanne, a 22-year-old student, claimed male staff “stared” at her breasts and asked her to cover-up her low-cut dress before entering, sparking a feminist backlash against the Orsay museum in Paris, France.
In the clip, shared by FEMEN France on Twitter, semi-naked women with slogans on their breasts hold up placards and shout that their boobs “are not obscene”.
Wearing face masks and standing a little apart, the women punch their fists into the air in unison as they chant.
Around 20 FEMEN activists took place in the topless demonstration on Sunday, September 13
The protest was staged to show support for a student who was barred from entering the museum because the dress she was wearing was deemed too revealing.
In a statement on Twitter, FEMEN wrote: “The obscenity is in your eyes!
“About 20 Femen activists took a topless tour of the Orsay Museum today.
“Stop the sexualisation of women’s bodies!”
