Women in New York bare their chests for "Go-Topless Day", fighting for "equal rights" to walk around shirtless

Reuters correspondent Jonathan Allen reports that "around two dozen topless women protested in Manhattan’s Bryant Park in New York City on Sunday (August 26, New York time) as part of what they called ’National Go-Topless Day’ to draw attention to inequality in topless rights between men and women."

Reuters correspondent Jonathan Allen (via InterAksyon.com) reports that "around two dozen topless women protested in Manhattan’s Bryant Park in New York City on Sunday (August 26, New York time) as part of what they called ’National Go-Topless Day’ to draw attention to inequality in topless rights between men and women." The report noted: "There were topless men in the park, too, but nobody paid them much attention, a disparity, organizers said, that demonstrated the need for the event."

 

Allen quoted Karen heaven, one of the event’s organizers, who said: "We say there is nothing wrong with the female nipple. My dog has six, I have two, but I can be put in jail for showing my nipples. It’s 2012...what are we thinking?" The report revealed that Heaven "was wearing white pants and not much else besides a purse over her shoulder."

Allen went on to point out: "It is legal for women to go topless in public in New York City but laws vary widely across the United States. Heaven and her colleagues say discrimination is unconstitutional and they want full equality."
