A Swiss artist defied the bitter cold to stage a naked protest outside Cologne Cathedral in Germany. She was supporting women’s rights after more than 100 women were reportedly sexually assaulted on New Year’s Eve.
Milo Moire, an artist and model based in Dusseldorf, held up a sign during her demonstration, which read: “Respect us! We’re not fair game, even when we are naked.”
The 32-year-old, who is of Spanish and Slovak descent, said she was appalled by the events, which took place on December 31. She decided to do something about this to ensure women can live their lives to the full and are not deemed as “sex objects.”
“As a woman I want to give an example that women shouldn’t hide away, they should lift themselves up, be self-confident and stand up for their values,” RT’s video agency Ruptly reported.
“I will not let others decide what I should and shouldn’t do as a woman, but rather, that it is self-evident that the 50 year-long struggle of emancipated women means that I can enjoy the life that I want, in liberty. This is why I am standing here today,” the 32-year-old artist added.
