PARIS (AP) - The new face of France - or at least the official postage stamp for the President Francois Hollande era - is modeled after a Ukrainian woman who takes her top off to defend feminist causes.
Not everyone thinks that's appropriate. The small, conservative Christian Democrat Party is calling for a boycott of the stamp.
Hollande on Sunday unveiled the new stamp, meant to represent Marianne, a symbol of France since the revolution.
Afterward, artist Olivier Ciappa said the image was modeled largely after Femen activist Inna Shevchenko. It's unclear whether Hollande, a Socialist who has pushed for more women's rights, knew about the Femen inspiration.
