Activists in the Ukrainian city of Kiev hit the streets in eye-grabbing garb to protest sex tourism, which is on the rise in this former Soviet country amid the global economic gloom. The women, members of a group called FEMEN, hand out leaflets to foreign-looking men informing them that "Ukraine is not a brothel." Founded by a 25-year-old woman named Anna Gutsol in 2008, the group stages monthly protests, with the ultimate goal of establishing stiffer laws against prostitution. But the group's methods have raised eyebrows, as the activists sometimes dress like hookers (donning microminis, stilettos, and fishnets) to get the message across.
