Since 1986, women have been able to walk around Washington, D.C., topless. Cosmo pointed out this fact in their July 2011 issue in an article entitled “Fascinating Breast Facts.”
GoTopless is an organization that promotes the right of women to be topless in public places. “FREE YOUR BREASTS! FREE YOUR MIND!” a line on the site proclaims.
“The ultimate goal is for the laws to change on the national level so that women have the same rights as men,” said Lara Terstenjak, spokesperson for GoTopless. “As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right or men should have to cover up in public.”
