Taroudant, Morocco – Three Moroccan girls took to the street almost naked this week in the neighborhood of Ben Saleh, in the old medina of Marrakech, according to the Moroccan daily Annass.
Along the lines of the radical feminist exhibitionist group Femen, the three Moroccan topless girls danced seductively in public while people were coming out of the mosque.
The same source added that the scene shocked residents of neighborhoods and the girls in question refused to cover themselves and attacked anyone approaching them.
Witnesses said that the girls in question were probably under the influence of drugs.
While Morocco has never seen a FEMEN-inspired topless protest, Femen France’s Page posted last year a picture of an allegedly Moroccan topless girl holding a banner that read “FREE FEMEN.”
Shot on the roof of what looks architecturally like a home on the Moroccan coast, the fan page claimed that the image is the “first topless in Morocco.”
Moroccan pro-democracy activist Zineb Belmkaddem says that using a woman’s naked body to change policy is simply bad for women.
“Exposing the woman’s body … reinforces the image that objectifies women actually, no matter how FEMEN would like to think that the action frees them somehow,” she said.
