NATIONAL GOTOPLESS PROTEST DAY


SUNDAY

MARCH 8TH 2009


[....]



Welcome to Gotopless.org!

We are a US organization, claiming that women have the same
constitutional right to be bare chested in public places as men.
[...]


Why a National GoTopless Protest day?

Gotopless.org claims constitutional equality
between men and women on being topless in public.
Currently, women who dare to be topless in public in the US are
repeatedly being arrested, fined, humiliated, criminalized
[ in some juridictions, tho not in San Francisco].


On SUNDAY MARCH 8TH, 2009,
topless women will rally ... across the USA to protest
this gross inequality in the law and
will demand that they be granted the fundamental right to be topless where men already enjoy that right,
according to the 14th amendment of the Constitution.....


Why is this protest on MARCH 8TH ?
Because March 8 is International Women's Day!


What will happen that day?
Across America, topless women and men will peacefully rally in the streets, parks, on the beaches of their towns and cities.[....]
Topfree performances will be given by various artists to honor women's right to be top free and
to convey how natural it is to be topfree for women in public just like it is for men.
Please write to us if you are an artist who would like to participate in one of our shows.

Please check back with us closer to March 8th
[2009 ] for a list of participating cities.

If you would like to organize an event in your city or town,
please contact us at
[ info @ gotopless. org ].
We will be delighted to assist you so you too can claim your constitutional right to be topless in public as a woman.

Our national inaugural Gotopless Day
on August 23rd [2008]
was a great success! [...]
We wish to thank all the participants who supported this cause.
Check back with us [ circa October 2008 ]
to view the pictures and videos of the events organized around the country.....
