Las dos militantes llevaban escritas en su cuerpo frases extraídas de una carta de la hija del director, en la que denunciaba los presuntos abusos a los que la sometió a los 7 años.
SEXUAL ABUSE IS A CRIME!STOP THE #SILENCE!Today two activists belonging to the Womansrightsgroup #FEMENinterrupted the concert of #WoodyAllen and his Jazzband, which tookplace in #Hamburgs #Elbphilharmonie. The ran on stage with their bodieswhich were coveredin quotes from his daughters open letter in which she talks about thesexual abuse she experienced through her father woody allen.To remind the world and the Jazzfans sitting in the audience that heis not just the neurotic and charming director,musician and actor butalso seems to like sticking his fingers into his daughters.If a perpetrator is a much celebrated so – called artist genius, thenthe supposed social value of the creative is more than the statementsof women who are "only" women and daughters the "possession", even ifthe accused is an important part of the canon of the internationalFilm history, its cultural and social status is therefore inviolable.Even if the case is 24 years old, his adoptive daughter Dylan stillsuffers today. Abuse leaves behind injured bodies and injured souls,even if cases such as this become time-barred and the public forgetsor ignores them. Three years ago, Dylan broke her silence and accusedthe public and other artists of continuing to praise Allen, despitehis deeds.( http://www.vanityfair.com/…/dylan-farrow-open-letter-woody-…)facts:- The abuse was supposed to have taken place on the attic, whicheveryone, according to his own statements, had never entered. Afterhair was found on the attic, he changed his statement.- He refused to take part in a police lie-detection test when thedetection test he had previously imposed was rejected by his own legalteam.- Allen took part in therapy 1991 because of the inappropriatebehavior towards Dylan.(http://www.emma.de/artikel/urteil-gegen-woody-allen-330895)Dylan argues that there are arguments in a traditional chauvinisttradition: woman's judgment would be mistaken by the femaleemotionality inherent in her, and Mia Farrow would be subjected tomotives such as jealousy and revenge, and the daughter is even accusedof not being able to distinguish between reality and "fantasy". WhileAllen in an opinion his daughter continues to try to gaslighten (thevictim is repeatedly questioned by one or more people over a longperiod, but not permanently, the perception of reality), he provides aperfect example of the structural power of powerful white men aboutwomen and children.You only have to look at the press rhetoric. Terms such as "scandalnudge" are used exclusively for female persons in public life and areoften liable to those affected even years after the alleged scandal.They are mostly branded for a very long time in public perception. Bythe way, this is usually about "scandals" from their teenage years ortheir 20s, in which no other persons were injured or put into danger.Party abuse, drunkenness, drug use or the so-called bosomblitz arealready considered scandals among female celebrities, while sexualabuse with Roman Polanski, Klaus Kinski, or R'Kelly is of littleinterest, it is rather an eccentric facet of their brilliant artisticpersonality.A real scandal is that male celebrities and culture-creatingabuse,rape and humiliate women. the men use their power and popularityto silent (in this case many and credible) voices against them.Another scandal is that the society and the press tolerate thisimpossible behavior and ignore it until the accumulation of thewitness statements and references such as, In the case of Bill Cosby,have reached such a dimension that they are impossible to ignorefurther on . And even then, with male celebrities, the motto is alwaysand first of all, innocent until proof of guilt.Violence against women is not to be ignored, is not tolerable and notexcusable, even if the accused is called Woody Allen.FEMEN does not want to be a part of this society, which protects andcheers the perpetrators.FEMEN disapproves of the fact that the Elbphilharmonie offers a pedophile a stage.No condemnation is no proof of innocence.

Dos activistas del colectivo feminista Femen interrumpieron este martes un concierto de Woody Allen y la New Orleans Jazz Band en la Filarmónica de Hamburgo (norte de Alemania) para reivindicar el “fin de la cultura del silencio” ante los abusos sexuales.
El grupo ha colgado en su página de Facebook un vídeo con su acción, en la que se ve cómo una mujer con el torso desnudo y frases escritas en negro sobre la piel sube al escenario al grito del “abuso sexual es un crimen”, hasta que ha sido retirada de escena.
Las frases que llevaban escrita ella y su compañera, explica Femen en un comunicado, han sido extraídas de una carta abierta publicada por Dylan, hija de Woody Allen, en la que denunció los presuntos abusos sexuales a los que le sometió el director de cine cuando tenía 7 años.
El caso se remonta a hace más de dos décadas y fue sobreseído por la justicia, pero Femen cuestiona la inocencia de Allen y lo pone como ejemplo del “poder estructural de poderosos hombres blancos sobre mujeres y niños”.
Femen pide “no olvidar” los casos de abusos sexuales y subraya que “la violencia contra la mujer no puede ser ignorada, no es tolerable ni puede ser excusada, incluso cuando el acusado se llama Woody Allen”.
