Angry Female Protesters Strip N*ked Outside the Presidents Palace to to Protest Violence Against Women (Photos)

A group of feminists stripped n*ked and performed a screaming protest outside the Argentinian president’s palace, Dailymail reports.

The women were speaking out in protest of violence against women in Argentina and more than 100 demonstrators gathered to march in front of the President’s residence Casa Rosada in the capital Buenos Aires.


The women performing the Femicide is Genocide protest stood in a group and undressed in front of onlookers before screaming angrily en masse.

They were members of the Artistic Force of Communicative Shock (FACC) performing a dramatisation as a prelude to the next march of the feminist collective NiUnaMenos (Not One Fewer) to be held on Saturday, June 3 in Argentina.


In all, 120 women undressed completely in the Plaza de Mayo and in front of the Palace of Courts.

The group used the attention-grabbing tactic to demand greater protection for the victims of gender-based violence, which is on the rise in Argentina.


According to official figures, so far this year a woman has been unlawfully killed on average once every 25 hours in Argentina.

On social networks, the hashtag, #FemicidioEsGenocidio quickly went viral, showing hundreds of photos and videos of the protest.

‘We represent them all and we will always exist,’ tweeted protester Claudia Acuna.

She added later, describing emotional scenes at the protest: ‘Older ladies crying because in their time they could not speak aloud of it, men shocked by the cruelty of these times. I’ll take that.’
