I was reading about the protest group 'Femen' , and their recent 'topless jihad' protest, demanding that the life of a Tunisian woman, Amina, be spared from stoning after she posed topless online. Nobody knows if Amina is still alive, or has been murdered by her own family, as some reports suggest..... but it got me thinking that it could be a great idea for an ATC swap series.

Please note, if you are easily offended or against images of nudity, this swap is not for you.

OK, so the rules bit: you must have a 4.95 rating minimum, but newbies are allowed as I am willing to angel.
You must live in the United Kingdom as this is a regional swap.
Your ATC must be of the correct size of 21รขยโ€ž2 by 31รขยโ€ž2 inches (64 mm รƒโ€” 89 mm) Any medium is allowed, including photography should you wish to recreate a protest within the confines pf your own property. (don't go out in the street and get arrested, ok?) lol
Due to the weight and thickness of the average atc, these can be sent out using a 2nd class stamp, so it's nice and purse friendly. It is up to the sender if they include any extras, but hearts should be given on the effort put into the ATC, not on anything else.

I do give permission for an international version to be hosted, as long as due credit is given.

Any questions, thoughts? please post below.

other swaps planned in the series:

2 Suffragettes

3 Riot grrrl

4 Lipstick feminism

5 Craftivist Collective (this group use crafts as a medium of peaceful protest - suitable for all swappers)

6 Labia Pride (UK feminista / New View [new york city])

7 Boobquake

8 Brainquake

9 SlutWalk

10 Take Back The Night / Reclaim The Night

11 "The Vagina Monologues"

12 International Women's Day

13 Sex-positive feminist icons x2 (chose your own icon... list given with the swap)

14 Gender Equality

= End of Series =

Edit: All swaps in this series should focus on the group (if it is a protest group as the topic, some in the series are based on events alone) but you may include references to one of their most famous or recent protests.

I wish I could do ATC's because this swap sounds right up my street :)

you can buy pre-cut atc cards...hobbycraft stocks them, and i have also got them on ebay. ...or you can cut your own card to size, so what's stopping you @snailmailer1

I'm a little unsure about the topic... and don't want to end up with a 3! Should the AYC be about Femen or Amina? The swap title suggests Femen but I'm unclear after reading the description.

SusieO 04/10/2013 #

Sorry, should read "ATC"' not "AYC".... stupid iPad!

kittenred 04/12/2013 #

for everyone! the topic is the femen group, but as the 'free amina' campaign is their most recent protest, you may combine elements of both, or simply focus on Femen themselves.

n.b the swap picture is of the group's logo, but it came out wrong. it's actually white with a black line down the middle.... olo ...like that! so double check it on google if you wanted to do a logo.

Ooh I'm excited now and have my ATC planned already. Thanks for the clarification, kittenred.
