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-Topless Day to draw attention to inequality in topless rights between men and women.
There were topless men in the park, too, but nobody paid them much attention, a disparity, organisers said, that demonstrated the need for the event.
The topless women drew crowds of onlookers who took pictures and video with their cell phones.
“We say there is nothing wrong with the female nipple,” Karen Heaven, an organiser 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 nipples. It’s 2012 — what are we thinking?”
