Femen activists burst into the Musée d’Orsay topless: “This is not obscene”. The protest after the stop to a visitor “too low-cut”


They entered the Musée d’Orsay, in Paris, topless, wearing the words “this is not obscene“, Literally“ this is not obscene ”. So the activists of the feminist movement Femen they made their voices heard after last Tuesday was denied access to the museum to a visitor wearing a judged dress “Too low-cut”, sparking controversy on the net.

According to the videos published on the net, about ten activists found themselves inside the museum, giving rise to the flashmob. They all wore masks and were in safety distance. During the blitz the women shouted phrases such as “obscenity is in your eyes”, or the same “this is not obscene”.

In a statement, they explained the reason for the demonstration, also citing the summer episodes of women who were created problems because they were topless on the beach: “The Musée d’Orsay houses numerous works, many of which female and male nudes, as well as the famous painting ‘L’origine du monde’ by Gustave Courbet. For those agents a low-cut dress is a problem, but it doesn’t create any problem for them to stare at a woman’s breasts and judge how she is dressed ”.
