A founding member of the radical-feminist group Femen has disavowed the organization, apologized to Christians and adopted a pro-life stance.
Sara Fernanda Giromini, once known as “Sara Winter” when she helped create Femen Brazil in 2012, now says the group “promotes the destruction of the traditional family and all moral values of society.”
“The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know – and Men Can’t Say” — What if everything you’ve been told about women in America is wrong? What if what your college professors taught you – along with television, movies, books, magazine articles and even news reports – have all been lies or distortions?
The impetus for Giromini’s shift came with the birth of her second child in October. She says in her new book, “B–ch, No! Seven Times I Was Betrayed by Feminism,” that she has repented for her first abortion, engaging in a same-sex kiss in front of the Church of Our Lady of Candelária in Rio de Janeiro and practicing bisexuality to gain “maximum respect” from other feminists.
“Lesbian and bisexual women have much more voice and respect within the movement, so in the search for recognition of my struggle, with each day that passed, I deconstructed my heterosexuality and was substituting it with an artificial bisexuality,” she says in a Dec. 15 YouTube video titled “I ask Christians for forgiveness for feminist protest,” News.com.au reported Thursday.
Giromini went on to say that while Femen claims to have women’s best interests in mind, the reality is far different.
“For the feminist sect women are not the inspiration, they are prime matter in the worst sense of the term. They are convenient objects useful for the purpose of inflaming hatred against the Christian religion, hatred against men, hatred against the beauty of women, hatred against the equilibrium of families,” Giromini said, the website reported.
Femen’s hatred prompted her to turn to the very Christians she once sought to enrage when topless. When they embraced her she said, “I feel extremely happy and welcome. I never imagined that religious people take ‘forgiveness’ seriously. This is a learning experience for all who criticize Christians.”
Giromini said she will donate some of the proceeds from her book to help pro-life causes.
“Please, women who are desperate to abort, think carefully about it. I was very sorry I did it. I don’t want the same for you,” she wrote in the book, Life Site News reported Monday.

The ex-feminist now plans to give talks on anti-feminism with Christian psychologist Marisa Lobo.
“I saw the feminist movement cover up for pedophiles,” Giromini warned. “I saw the feminist movement persecute women. … I am a witness to the fact that today in the feminist movement women are not of any importance but serve as fuel for the fires of hatred that the feminist sect cannot allow to die.”
