BARING IT ALL

A Misogynist Man Runs Femen?

He calls women “weak” and “bitches,” new documentary alleges.

Activist group Femen is most widely known for its breast-baring protests. But now an Australian filmmaker is exposing them even further. Kitty Green, director of the documentary Ukraine Is not a Brothel, alleges that Femen “consultant” Victor Svyatski is actually the founder and director of the group. But he holds an iron fist on it, carefully coordinating the protesters’ appearances and routinely calling the girls “weak” and “bitches.” Green told The Independent, “He hand-picked the prettiest girls because the prettiest girls sell more papers. The prettiest girls get on the front page ... that became their image, that became the way they sold the brand.”
