Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, a 20-year-old Egyptian feminist and political activist who uploaded her naked photographs on the Internet as an expression of personal freedom, is creating a furor online.

After posting the pictures on her blog, Elmahdy stated: The photo screams against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy.

More than 2.1 million people have viewed her blog, and it has received more than 10,000 likes.

Elmahdy calls herself a Secular, Liberal, Feminist, Vegetarian, Individualist Egyptian.

She tweeted: I took my nude photo myself in my parent's home months before I met @Kareemamer [her boyfriend] and I'm atheist since I was 16.

The young woman, a student at the American University of Cairo, has received a lot of support for her bravery and courage in posting such pictures. Religious critics have warned her of punishment for her defiance.

In Egypt, nudity, even in art, is strongly frowned upon, and Elmahdy's photos have become a subject of debate on Twitter.

Here are some the tweets in response to the #NudePhotoRevolutionary hashtag.
