Facebook deletes FEMEN movement’s account without any explanation

"For the first time, the Facebook administration accused FEMEN in 'propagation of pornography'; this time it didn't explain the reason," the statement published on FEMEN's website says.

FEMEN's representatives think that the administration of Facebook has decided to do this as a result of the growing popularity of "the international movement against censorship of women's breasts on the Internet."

"Women's nudity has always been considered as a symbol of freedom and an encroachment upon it, is equal to the encroachment upon rights and freedoms of a human," FEMEN says.

FEMEN is a Ukrainian feminism movement that has been in existence since 2010. The movement's activists have repeatedly held topless actions against sexism, homophobia, prostitution and religion. In August 2013, it was announced that FEMEN stopped functioning in Ukraine.

The movement has gained notoriety not only in Ukraine, but worldwide. At one time, it used to be a small movement, but then activists extended the range of their activities. However, denudation in public still remains the main form of the group's protests.

The mission of the "FEMEN" movement is to create the most favourable conditions for the young women to join up into a social group with the general idea of the mutual support and social responsibility, helping to reveal the talents of each member of the movement.
