In 2013, Tunisian feminist Amina Sboui left the country after publishing a topless photograph that ignited a blaze of controversy across the Arab world.

Now, after two years in Paris, Amina is back - and about to launch a feminist magazine that represents an entirely new phase in her activism.

From her home in the Tunisian village of Sidi Bou Said, Amina looks back on the incident that made her famous and explains why she decided to publish an such an incendiary image.
