Church protest held after priest says women provoke violence from men by provocative behaviour

RTE News

Women in Carrara, Italy attended mass wearing miniskirts and low-necked dresses to protest against an Italian priest’s comments.

Father Pietro Corsi, priest at Saint Terenzio, a church in Lerici, Northern Italy said that women killings and violence against women are caused by provocative women’s behaviour.

Father Corsi hung a notice on the Church’s notice board on women dressing which provoked strong reactions and protests among Italian women and also towards the Church.
