Jeanne was refused entry to the Musée d'Orsay on Tuesday because of her cleavage and had to put on a jacket to access the public establishment.

A humiliating experience that the student of literature had recounted in an open letter addressed to the museum and shared on social networks, accompanied by a photo of "the dress of discord".

A few days later, Sunday afternoon, around twenty Femen took over the Musée d'Orsay in support of the young woman and to reaffirm, as Le Parisien tells us, "that our torso is not obscene and that we support Jeanne and all women victims of sexist discrimination ”.

On videos shared on social networks, we can see the activists with bare breasts, fists raised, with slogans written on the body and repeated aloud, such as "This is not obscene" or "Obscenity. is in your eyes ”.

The Musée d'Orsay apologized and recalled that what Jeanne had suffered was not normal and did not correspond to their policy.
