Topless Femen women ring Notre-Dame church bell to 'celebrate' Pope's resignation.

New York, Feb 13 ( ANI ): Topless women activists from a feminist group had rang a church bell in the famous Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral in Paris, to 'celebrate' the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.

The nine women from an Ukrainian feminist group Femen, who had the words 'Pope No More' boldly written across their naked chests and backs, said that they are 'provocateurs' cheering the Pope's decision to step down, New York Post reports.

The women rang a huge bell, one of the bronze bells made for the 850th anniversary of the cathedral for which they were removed from the church premises by the cathedral staff.

The women also said they are protesting in support of gay marriage. ( ANI )
