Women In New York Protest For The Right To Drop Their Tops
If Rick Ross can flaunt his triple Ds, women should be able to also.
Well, at least that’s what this group of New Yorkers think…
Some two dozen topless women protested in a New York City park on a hot, sweaty Sunday as part of what they called “National Go-Shirtless Day” to draw attention to inequality in shirtless rights between men and women.
There were shirtless men in the park, too, but nobody paid them much attention, a disparity, organizers said, that demonstrated the need for the event.
“We say there is nothing wrong with the female,” Karen Heaven, an organizer of the event, told the crowd that quickly formed around her in Manhattan’s Bryant Park. She was wearing white pants and not much else besides a purse over her shoulder. “My dog has six, I have two, but I can be put in jail for showing my nps. It’s 2012 — what are we thinking?”
It is legal for women to go shirtless 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. Similar protests were scheduled in about 30 U.S. cities and 10 around the world, organizers said.
Several women waved signs saying: “Equal Shirtless Rights For All.”
We bet this was a sight to see on a Sunday afternoon. Do you think women should have the right to bare their brestisis?
