Ukraine Is Not A Brothel

Ukraine’s topless feminist sensation FEMEN have stirred up a press frenzy across Europe. Outraged by the world's image of Ukrainian women as either brides for sale or commodities of sex tourism, Femen bare their breasts in protest. "Ukraine Is Not A Brothel" offers an intimate glimpse inside the world's most provocative feminist organisation. A movement that began in the snow-filled streets of a corrupt, post-Soviet Ukraine, Femen’s naked war against patriarchy is gaining momentum internationally. However before they can take the world by storm, these bold and beautiful women must first confront the contradictory forces powering their own 'titillating' feminist organisation.
