Dictatorships are distinguished by authoritarian and aggressive hierarchical organization of society. They are based on the primary balance of power between the oppressors and oppressed, and build their political strength over patriarchal ideology. Apart from repression and widespread denial of personal freedoms, the authoritarian state rests on the economic and social domination of the father figure – the patriarch. The patriarchal ideology and the dictatorship complement and feed off each other; therefore overthrow is one of the main goals of feminism.
FEMEN have fought against the dictatorship in Ukraine since 2010. Two years ago, after beating of the students on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv, FEMEN sextremist, despite the danger of reprisals by the authorities, came out on a topless protest against the bloody dictatorship of Yanukovych.
Beautiful and merciless as death itself, FEMEN sextremist urged the Ukrainian people to the brutal reprisal against dictatorial regime of Yanukovych. The Angel of Death appeared at the gates of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra with a sickle in her hand and the prophetic motto on her body: “Dictatorship must die!” It was Yanukovych to unleash the bloody harvest on November 30, by beating the teen students and peaceful civilians with the hands of Special police force “Berkut” on Maidan in Kyiv. The time had come to take responsibility for banditry. The one who sow the wind will reap the whirlwind!
