Ukrainian feminists go over the top

The militant Ukrainian feminists who protest topless have urged models across the world “not to go to brothels". The activists showed up at Milan Fashion Week protesting against the use of anorexic models in fashion industry.

­Minutes before the beginning of the Versace show, the semi-naked activists of the Femen group appeared with "Fashion = Fascism" and "Anorexia" handwritten in black marker over their bare chests.

Italian police gave the topless ladies a cold welcome as they reached the entrance to the star-studded fashion show.

­Allegra, the daughter of Donatella Versace has been battling anorexia for years. She has a 50% stake in the company founded by her uncle Gianni Versace.  

“Each year, the grinding plates of the fashion business mill hundreds of thousands of girls,” the Ukrainian activists wrote in their blog.

“Promoting the glitz and riches of a modelling career they impose false ideals on women, provoking real illnesses. Made a fool of by fashion propaganda, frustrated models regularly join the ranks of sex industry workers and psychiatric patients,” members of the Kyiv-based movement, added.
