PHOTOS: Brazilian Women Protest Nude Against Sexual Violence

share on:

Hundreds of women in Rio de Janeiro stripped off to protest rape and violence by marching into the streets of the Brazilian city.

They painted slogans, symbols and words on their bare bodies as they marched to Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beachfront.

They said one of their key aims is to address claims by some that women provoke attacks by the way they dress or act. They also wanted to fight against proposed new abortion restrictions which, if passed, would mean a woman who was raped could only have a termination if she could prove the crime.
