Women strip off outside Argentina’s house of congress to protest against the objectification of women (and ensure the most awkward moment of this man’s life)
- Members of the Urbanudismo campaign are protesting about the objectification of women
- They say their actions are neither sexual or provocative
- Four women stripped naked and strolled around outside Argentina's Congress building in Buenos Aires
- Police were called after passers-by reported feeling 'uncomfortable'
A group of women sparked surprise outside Argentina's national congress when they shed their clothes and strolled around completely naked in a protest about objectifying women.
The members of the Urbanudismo campaign are calling for the acceptance of the naked female form, saying their actions are neither sexual or provocative.
The protest lasted several minutes until police were called because it was making passers-by 'uncomfortable' - including one man who looked especially awkward when approached by a naked woman.
He got up and walked off when she sat next to him.
Four women stripped in the Plaza de Los Dos Congresos, in Buenos Aires, yesterday with the stated aim of 'promoting tolerance, acceptance of our freedom and our rights'.
Urbanudismo spokeswoman Paula Brindisi told Argentine newspaper Larazon: 'We want to promote the acceptance of being naked as natural, and not as something perverse or sexual.'
She said supporters are taking action in order to take ownership of their bodies, and defy limitations on public nudity.
The protesters were eventually approached by two police officers, one of whom reportedly told them: 'This is no way to demonstrate.'
One unnamed policeman told the newspaper: 'We came up here because there are many people who complained and felt uncomfortable with this situation.'
The Urbanudismo movement is in favour of breastfeeding in public, and freedom of expression, and says public nudity 'will please many, not harm or offend them'.
