Nude tunisian women
Days before posting the shots online, Amina made an appearance on a Tunisian talk show During the appearance, the host reportedly suggested that Amina be placed in a mental institution.But the reactions from talk show hosts and Islamist groups haven’t done much to quell support for Amina’s cause, as many other women from Tunisia and elsewhere continue to post topless photos of themselves online in solidarity.
But most women in the country feel that Tyler was out of line, even as they express concerns about the rolling back of progressive legislation on women and the rise of the conservative Salafi movement in Tunisia since the overthrow of the secular dictatorship in 2011.One of the photos shows the young woman smoking a cigarette with the Arabic words for "my body is my own and not the source of anyone’s honor" scrawled across her chest.In another (modified image below), she holds her middle fingers up to the camera, "fuck your morals" written in large block print on her torso.While the countryside is somewhat more conservative, attitudes to female dress vary according to local social and cultural customs and in the cities many women don Western-style clothes. And he warned that "impudent women could go to hell." Kazabri said what he calls "nudity" is part of a "conspiracy" against Morocco by people who wish to "kill modesty, values and principles." The outburst from one of Morocco's most prominent clerics was criticised in the media. Omar al-Kazabri, imam of Casablanca's Hassan II mosque, Morocco's largest house of worship, said there is a growing trend among women across the country to go about "unclothed." "Nudity is no longer confirmed to season, it is spreading before our eyes in winter and summer," he said on his official Facebook page earlier this week. It breaks your heart to see the situation we find ourselves in. Tyler herself, a high school student, said that while she was encouraged by the solidarity, the burning of the black flag bearing the Muslim profession of faith in front of the Paris mosque was a step too far, even if the banner has been championed by ultraconservatives and jihadists.“I am against that,” she told French TV Canal on Saturday.
“They didn’t insult a certain kind of Muslim, the extremists, but all Muslims.”Tyler, who has described herself as a FEMEN member, said she now fears for her life in Tunisia after ultraconservative Muslim clerics recommended she be stoned to death for posting the photos. Tunisia is one of the most liberal countries in the region, but her protest has shocked even mainstream society in her homeland, still conservative about nudity.
The second has the words “My body belongs to me and is not the source of anyone’s honor” written in Arabic.
Apparently, she told a Tunisian newspaper that she posted these pictures to make the voice of Tunisian women heard and stand up against oppression.
"The ministry of justice is not a house of ill repute," an angry bystander said.
Femen appears to have done what it set out to do: draw international attention to the case of a Tunisian girl known as Amina Tyler, 19, who may receive two years in prison for allegedly graffiting the group's name on a mosque.
Tyler became the founder of the feminist movement FEMEN in Tunisia in February.
