A 19-year-old Tunisian female activist has been detained in a psychiatric hospital after posting topless pictures of herself on Femen-Tunisia activist website.

Very reminiscent of Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho being detained in a psychiatric hospital by his family because he wished to be a writer. [see Veronika Decides to Die]

Only identified as Amina, there are now calls for her to be stoned to death.

When are Muslim fundamentalists going to wake up to the fact women have bodies, and it is for them to decided how to use their own bodies? They are not objects to be used, to then be covered up when not in use.

More than 90,000 people have signed a petition calling for those who have threatened Amina’s life to be prosecuted.

An open letter calling for an International Day to Defend Amina has been signed by many feminist and atheist activists, including Richard Dawkins.
