The group FEMEN protested around Europe on April 4, 2013 in support of women's rights (particularly control over their bodies) in the Arab World.  The radical feminists, calling for more sexual freedom for Arab women, were protesting in support of a young Tunisian woman, Amina, who received online death threats from ultraconservative Muslims after posting topless photos of herself online.
