    1 of 1 2 of 1

      If you've been baffled by the Ukrainian topless women's group Femen, then we've got a video for you.

      The activist group is catching on in different countries because it's reclaiming nudity as a means of challenging patriarchy.

      Femen has spread from Kiev to Paris to São Paulo. Don't be surprised if this is the year it arrives in Canada or the United States.

      Why does the headline have a warning? That implies a risk of harm. By all means inform but implying a risk of harm where none exists is harmful.

      Malcolm: That warning is a courtesy to those who may be viewing the item in an environment, such as a place of work or near children, where such images may be considered inappropriate by some.
      It should not be considered an editorial statement.
      We swear.
