Protesters interrupt Woody Allen's jazz concert in Germany

Topless Feminist Activists Disrupt Woody Allen Jazz Concert in Germany (Video)

The women continued speaking off stage even after Allen and his band blithely continued playing. But security guards pulled them offstage before they had a chance.

Variety reported that after the performance, Femen also handed out leaflets explaining that they were aiming to "give the victims of sexual violence a voice".

Farrow alleged that Allen first abused her when she was seven years old, and wrote that the fact that he had gotten "away with what he did to [her] haunted" her as she grew up. The woman ran about on stage wearing flowers in their hair and with messages scrawled on their bodies - quotes from Farrow's 2014 open letter detailing Allen's alleged abuse, according to Femen's Facebook page. Actress Mariel Hemingway wrote in her memoir that Allen tried to seduce her as a teen. "I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's well-being".

The German feminist group, Femen, shared a video that sees two activists mounting the stage during an appearance by Woody, who plays the clarinet, on Tuesday in Hamburg. Farrow told the authorities she believed that her and Mr. Allen's adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, had been sexually molested. Femen members have previously protested in places like the 2012 London Olympics and the Grand Mosque of Paris. He was given a standing ovation at the end of the show.

The same day as the premiere, Ronan Farrow published a column in trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter lashing out at the media for failing to ask hard questions about the allegations.
