Scout Willis caused quite the stir when she strolled topless through New York City to protest internet censorship, and it appears she's part of an even bigger movement.

On Sunday, about 20 male and female protesters took to Washington Square Park in the name of the same cause, proudly parading around topless and trying to recruit more activists to join them.

Free The Nipple, the group responsible for the protest, also used the opportunity to promote their upcoming feature film about their endeavors 'to end this insane war on women's boobs!'

Free The Nipple founder Lina Esco, 29, writes on the Fund Anything page for the film: 'Today, in the USA it is ILLEGAL for a woman to be topless in 37 states. In New York City, in 1992 it became LEGAL to be topless in public, but the NYPD continued to arrest women. 

'I believe these laws do not reflect the dream upon which the United States was founded.'

Some of the women in the group went completely topless for the protest, carrying signs that read 'F*** censorship'.

Others wore T-shirts or donned strategically placed stickers with the words 'Free The Nipple' on them, announcing their cause to bewildered onlookers.

Lina, an actress and filmmaker, decided to stage the event after Scout Willis - the 22-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and his ex-wife Demi Moore - posted Twitter photos of herself walking around the city topless. 

Scout used the hashtag #FreeTheNipple and captioned one shot: 'Legal in NYC but not on @instagram.'

Scout explained the logic behind her topless posts in an article on XOJane, writing: 'Women are regularly kicked off Instagram for posting photos with any portion of the areola exposed, while photos sans nipple - degrading as they might be - remain unchallenged.

'So I walked around New York topless and documented it on Twitter, pointing out that what is legal by New York state law is not allowed on Instagram.'

She acknowledged that her actions may have been misunderstood as a cry for attention, but insisted: 'I didn't choose my public life, but it did give me this platform. A platform that helps make body politics newsworthy.

'I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness,' she added.

'What I am arguing for is a woman's right to choose how she represents her body - and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body.'

And that's exactly the message that the Free The Nipple organization is trying to spread.

'My public life gave me this platform. A platform that helps make body politics newsworthy'

In a trailer for the film, a group of girls is seen promoting the cause in New York and running into trouble with the police. A banner on the screen reads: 'What is more obscene - violence or a nipple?'

A voiceover then says: 'Every day the media plays glorified images of violence yet discourages nudity. And so many of our heroes solve problems through killing and violence. We need new heroes, new stories. And we need them now.'

Positive influence: 'I didn't choose my public life, but it did give me this platform,' Scout (pictured) explained in a pots on XOJane. 'A platform that helps make body politics newsworthy'

'What @instagram won't let you see #FreetheNipple': Scout Willis strolled around the city with breasts exposed to protest censorship on the social media platform. 

Scout Willis is taking a stand without a shirt.

The 22-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis strolled around Manhattan topless Tuesday to protest Instagram's nudity policy.

The younger Willis tweeted photos of herself in a floral skirt, brown shoes and nothing else walking the streets of Manhattan.

"Legal in NYC but not on Instagram," Willis tweeted about her snaps. She captioned another: "What @Instagram won't let you see #FreeTheNipple"

Her protest came after the social media platform removed one of her photos for violating its Community Guidelines.

The photo that got deleted was one of a sweatshirt that depicted two topless women, nipples clearly visible.

"My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me," Willis tweeted"However, I don't wish to force this view on anyone. If you don't like what you see, simply unfollow me."

Willis followed her tweet with grabs of Instagram posts by venture capitalist Dan Bilzerian showing women close to naked.

"Pictures of breast cancer survivors have been flagged + deleted but this is super #sick and #hot amiright?" Willis tweeted sarcastically about a shot of a woman nude except for host pants and suspenders. "@Instagram I'm sure this woman feels super safe and validated by your community guidelines."

@evolution: If she let the Dogs out,it is unfair to keep the cat locked up SILLY WOMAN !!

@evolution: Freedom is essential, Human Rights is vital. I do agree with you that in most cases it is women who fight to have their rights mainly, in my opinion,to prove equality to the opposite sex. Sometimes we do ask for too much,forgetting that Men are created with specific roles not ideally suited to women.

Answering your question: Yes I would love not only to see your dick,but to feel it in me..ONLY if we share the same things in common AND are on the same wave length.  NO...I would not want YOU walking around naked with it hanging about,save that privilege for the one YOU love.

@TIG the only person that would say someone is stupid for a view like this has to be conservative oriented. One time people like them was fighting and still fighting up to this day to stop people like us from entering this country. They fighting us to this day to roll back the clock pre 1965 and, that is no joke.
