Inna Shevchenko, leader of the feminist movement FEMEN France, appeared topless on a live program on Arab television channel Al Jazeera to protest "Medieval prejudices."

On the evening program The Stream, which addressed the relationship between feminism and Islam, the program host asked Shevchenko: "What is better for women: nudity or the paranja?" Shevchenko responded by taking off her T-shirt.

"By doing that she gave practical advice, calling the attitude to a naked woman an indicator of freedom," the report says.

The program host said images of naked women are unacceptable on Al Jazeera.

"FEMEN intends to use all media sites to promote liberation from religion and other medieval prejudices," FEMEN said in a statement.

FEMEN was established in Ukraine in 2008 and gained publicity thanks to protests that FEMEN activists have conducted in various countries.

In early September, FEMEN activist Inna Shevchenko, who initiated cutting down a cross in central Kyiv, left Ukraine and moved to France.

In mid-September, the French justice authorities officially registered FEMEN as an international women's movement on the territory of France.
