Three demonstrators from the Ukrainian women's rights movement FEMEN staged a protest it Vatican on Sunday, shortly after the Pope's regular Sunday address. One of them sneaked into St. Peter's square and took off her coat revealing a transparent blouse. The demonstrator held a sign saying 'Freedom for Women' and shouted "Libere siamo noi" (italian for "We are free"). She was stopped as she started pulling her clothes off by police and quickly led along with her two partners to a nearby police station where the protesters were questioned.

The mission of the "FEMEN" movement is to create the most favourable conditions for the young women to join up into a social group with the general idea of the mutual support and social responsibility, helping to reveal the talents of each member of the movement.
