‘Go Topless Day’ encourages women to bare all for equal rights

BRYANT PARK (PIX11) – Talk about role reversal.

More than a dozen women weNT topless in Bryant Park Sunday while the men were wearing pasties and bras.

“We’re here to open everybody’s eyes about what they don’t know,” said Celin Cepeda.

Welcome to the sixth annual “Go Topless Day,” a 24 hour period where women are encouraged to show their breasts to protest what organizers say are hypocritical laws where men can be topless but women can’t.

Women already can legally go topless anywhere men can in New York City. But of course private businesses can make their own rules.

Sunday’s “Go Topless Day” was supposedly being held in 40 cities, up from 30 last year.

Men and women saw the demonstration as a serious issue. At a time when Governor Cuomo’s 10-point Women’s Equality Act failed to pass in the legislature, going topless is one small victory.
