#WATCH: Topless protestors disrupt Imams discussing “Validity” of Marital Rape.

Video has emerged of the moment two members of a feminist group staged a topless protest at a Muslim women’s conference near Paris this weekend.

The women – one of Algerian origin, the other Tunisian – leapt onto the stage and exposed their upper bodies daubed in slogans as two imams debated whether it was permitted for a man to beat his wife, according to a spokesperson for Femen, a group founded in Ukraine but now based in the French capital.

The video shows the women shouting “Nobody subdues me, nobody owns me, I am my own prophet!” in French and Arabic.

Stewards bundled them off the stage and handed them over to police, who detained them briefly before releasing them overnight.

Some of the audience shouted “Dirty whores, kill them” and about 15 men jumped onto the stage and assaulted them before the police intervened, the spokesperson told the AFP news agency.

The organisers intend to take legal action, according to police.

On Sunday afternoon a small group of self-styled pro-secular campaigners demonstrated outside the salon.

Femen had earlier started a petition calling for the event to be banned because of the alleged presence of fundamentalist preachers who justify rape in marriage.

The event was reportedly attended by Nader Abou Anas, a France-based radical preacher, known for having endorsed rape in marriage and more widely the subjection of women.

One stall at the conference showcased “Shopping and Cooking” as activities more appropriate for women.
