On Sunday Aug. 28, 2016, GoTopless, a women’s equal rights organization called people in cities around the world to stand up for women’s right and to go topless in public. The GoTopless pride parade was held in many US cities like New York and LA, and some other cities where it is legal in USA. It was also supported by some other cities/countries around the world. Some states in USA do not permit topless display in public.
The activists of the organization “gotopless” believe in the philosophy that “”As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right. Or else, men should have to wear something to hide their chests” Rael, founder of GoTopless.org and spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement (rael.org)”
