'I wish I’d pushed them off the stage': Model furious after topless protesters 'ruin' Paris fashion show
The biggest shock of Paris’s spring-summer 2014 fashion shows came on the otherwise calm and gentle Nina Ricci catwalk, when two topless activists from protest group Femen crashed the podium.
Grabbing a startled model making her way down the catwalk, they screamed “fashion fascism,” with words decrying the sexualization of the modeling industry written in make-up. One had “Fashion dictaterror” scrawled on her naked torso, the other “Model don’t go to brothel.”
One British model, Liverpool-born Hollie-May Saker, was caught in the middle, with the protesters brushing against her lamé-and-lace skirt.
“The next thing I just see half-naked women with black marker pen scrawled across their bare chests and that’s when she came at me….As she grabbed my arm she lifted my skirt exposing me – I pulled my arm back with such force that I landed a punch square on her nose,” Saker told the Echo. (Photo: AP Photo/Jacques Brinon)

So, to fight back against the sexualization of the modeling industry, these women assaulted a model and forcibly exposed her?
Protip: You’re not fighting a patriarchal system by assaulting women and exposing them against their will.
I have literally never heard of a positive thing done by Femen.  Seriously.  They need to stop.  First the blatant Islamophobia, and now this?  Really?
If your idea of feminism includes racist bullshit and attacking women who don’t conform to your exact image of a feminist, guess what?  You’re a complete asshole and you’re misrepresenting feminism as a whole.

I *hate* Femen. Literally they are the reason feminism is viewed in a bad light. They’re the West Borough Baptist of feminism and I can’t stand it.

Ugh ugh ugh ugh. The fashion industry is absolutely plagued with shit  but the models themselves are not the problem.  Those women are professionals just trying to do their jobs.  Jobs that they are often (shockingly) underpaid and under-protected for.  The last thing they need to worry about are women seemingly ‘supporting’ them against sexualization by physically exposing them.  Not only that, but Nina Ricci is hardly a designer who is exploiting women’s sexuality.  Your idea of feminism is detracting from a woman’s art and livelihood by showboating?  Femen can just go away.

Women attacking women for the sake of women.
Well done.
Not.

they did it because they’re leader (a man) told them to which makes it even worse.

"WWD or any other major fashion media outlets do not wish to treat runway racism this season as an issue so we haven’t had an actual official list of the demographics of catwalk models. This is pretty much an UNOFFICIAL runway statistics list I have compiled from style.com and TFS showlists. 4 major fashion capitals and their most famous shows were taken into account. Shows are listed alphabetically and appearances denote the total number of looks allotted to MOC (Model of Colour) .
The numbers will speak for themselves although casting directors and designers use the best voice blocking earplugs to block out any criticism -noise - against their white-washed line-ups. I apologize if I have made any mistake regarding the exact number of MOC who have walked in the shows but it is 1 more or less each time. Sometimes make-up and heavy wigs covering the faces made it way harder to identify models (style.com even didn’t list their names either).
I’ll start with Paris, the capital that holds the most significance out of all, and then Milan, London and New York respectively.”

HIGH SCHOOL



This is how to run a stick of Chapstick
down the black boxes on your scantron
so the grading machine skips the wrong
answers. This is how to honor roll. Hell,
this is how to National Honor Society.
This is being voted “Most Likely to Marry
for Money” or “Talks the Most, Says the
Least” for senior superlatives. This is
stepping around the kids having panic
attacks in the hallway. This is being the
kid having a panic attack in the hallway.
This is making the A with purple moons
stamped under both eyes. We had to try.
This is telling the ACT supervisor you have
ADHD to get extra time. Today, the average
high school student has the same anxiety
levels as the average 1950’s psychiatric
patient. We know the Pythagorean theorem
by heart, but short-circuit when asked
“How are you?” We don’t know. We don’t
know. That wasn’t on the study guide.
We usually know the answer, but rarely
know ourselves.
