Topless activists denounce female circumcision at Berlin film festival

London, February 9 (ANI): Topless protesters stole the show on the red carpet at the opening ceremony of the Berlin film festival, there to protest against female circumcision.

They turned up nearly at the same time as another activist, the 75-year-old Hollywood icon Jane Fonda.

While the actress covered up on a snowy evening in a sparkling floor-length gown and fur coat, the activists scrawled political slogans over their naked breasts, the Daily Mail reported.

One of the demonstrators from Ukrainian women rights group 'Femen' scaled the barriers and threw herself in front of the cameras and hundreds of onlookers. (ANI)
