A few weeks ago, Guillaume returned to Kiev to photograph the women of the movement defying the winter weather as well.
FEMEN have long defended their sexualized method of protest by claiming that if they just marched with banners they would never be noticed, and their voices would never be heard.
See the pictures with nudity after the break, and decide for yourself if the messages have greater impact when framed by the power of the female form. See other FEMEN coverage in the Osocio archives.
Beautiful work. I wish the sign carried by Alexandra Nemchinova did not use her larger size as a pun, but obviously she was a willing participant.
