Many women have marched on the streets showing their bare breasts in order to promote gender equality.
A group of 50 women have taken to the streets to promote gender equality by stripping bare chested on the Go Topless Day.
The event attracted crowds of men taking photographs. The event is celebrated each year on the Sunday closest to Women’s Equality Day, marking the day American women earned the right to vote.
A group of about 50 women as well as men were walking topless in the oceanside Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice, behind a giant, inflatable pink breast that had the phrase ‘equal topless rights’ written on it, Dailymail stated.
A few dozen women, and some men, went topless as they walked down Broadway in New York City. Onlookers gawked and took photos as the parade participants went by.
The event in New York City and Los Angeles were two of several planned for cities across the globe. Gatherings were planned in New Hampshire, Denver and more.
Nadine Gary, president of Go Topless, said she hopes the events will take away the shock and awe around seeing female breasts.
‘This push for women to go topless in the 21st century is as strong as women wanting to vote in the 20th century,’ she said. ‘It may be sensual, but it’s not illegal to be sensual.’
