What’s the most embarrassing situation you have been into while being in public? Picking the nose out? Your friends calling you with funny names?Or getting caught with a giant plastic vagina’s in public?
Yes! This is not the first thing you will ever hear every day, but three women could face prison sentence while carrying a giant plastic through the streets of Seville, Spain on a plinth.
The feminist protest, mimicking Easter processions back in May 2014, was against gender discrimination in the workplace, as a part of a national march by a Spanish workers’ union.
The women, whose group’s name translates to “Brotherhood of the Blessed Rebellious Vagina,” are facing charges after their actions were called a “religious hate crime”.
They’re accused of “crimes against religious sentiment” for parading “a plastic vagina a couple of meters high in the style of the Virgin Mary,” according to court papers, The Local states.
A previous ruling, ruled in favor of the women, has been overturned after an appeal by the Association of Christian Lawyers. A judge said they had deliberately intended to insult the “religious sentiments” of Catholics and mock Easter parades.
The women could face up to 18 months in prison.
