Germany: 'Rape no more' cry bloodied femen

FEMEN activists wearing bloodies underwear and hand prints on their topless bodies protested outside the Egyptian embassy in Berlin on Friday. The women cried out chants against the rape and sexual assault referring to violence against women in Cairo's Tahir Square during mass protests. The six topless women climbed on top of the Egyptian embassy wall to demonstrate, wearing underwear depicting a bleeding vagina and with red handprints painted all over their bodies.

Egyptian internet activist and women's rights advocate Aliaa Magda Elmahdy was part of the protest, who became known for publishing a nude photograph of herself on her blog page in 2011 and later sought political asylum in Sweden after receiving death threats for her feminist activism. German FEMEN activist Josephine Markmann was also demonstrating at the embassy making it her first protest since her release from prison in Tunisia.
