The right to bare breasts: Women in New York and LA parade the streets to stand up for women's right to go topless in public

Women in New York and LA bare breasts for Go Topless Day

  • Women marched in Go Topless Day parades around the world Sunday, which was also Women's Equality Day
  • They aimed to question laws that make it illegal for women to be topless, while it is legal for men to do so
  • Events were held in US cities including in New York and LA as well as in Germany, Chile and South Korea 

Women bared their breasts in parades around the world to demand the right to go fully topless in public.

They marched in Go Topless Day parades held in US cities including New York, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver and Minneapolis.

Events were also held abroad in Freiburg in Germany, Seoul in South Korea and Valparaiso in Chile.

But while some women who took part were fully exposed, many abided by the law and covered their nipples – with tape or body paint.

Some protesters marching in Venice, California, carried placards declaring 'it's boobs, not bombs!' and 'war is indecent, not my breasts.'

Held every year on the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day, the aim is to question laws that make it illegal for women to not wear shirts while it is legal for men to do the same.

This year, it fell on Women's Equality Day – which is marked every year on August 26 after the date in 1920 when women got the right to vote in the US.

I like this. My children fed from my breasts and my grandchildren fed from there mommie my daughter. Before the "apple" we were all naked "it is written". I personally do do have an issue with this.

Cool, and people will learn that just because they see something it gives them no rights to harass or anything. That should be a given. Dudes getting turned on should manage themselves, look somewhere else if they can't deal.

First of all:
It should be illegal to even have sloppy droopy breasts walking around the street(men and women)
Second,if you’re parading and proud of walking topless(women) then why are you covering up the nipples?
Third, you’re promoting pedos and perverts so don’t cry rape and harassment.
Fourth, there are children every fcking where hitting puberty’s at 3 years already.
Fifth, it’s beyond personal. That part of your body belongs to you and your spouse eyes. Are you all that desperate for attention?
The law is there to protect you to begin with and you’re just reversing it for some stupid arse reasons.Its bad enough we got a bunch of trannies deceiving us already.
Sad
