Femen is Feminist?

Please share my latest blog with Huffington Post Canada found here: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/shahla-khan-salter/topless-jihad-day_b_3021440.html

An excerpt: 

"For Femen bigotry appears to be part of the platform. For Femen there seems to be only one way to be a feminist and that is to discard modesty and expose oneself.

Femen does not appear to acknowledge the work of feminists in Muslim communities, for example, who do not expose their bodies but still fight for equality and could face harm from extremists as a result.
