GoTopless Day 2016 will fall on Sunday Aug. 28.
GoTopless Day always falls at the Sunday closest to Women’s Equality Day, Aug 26. It is indeed on Aug 26, 1920 that women earned their right to vote on the basis of Gender Equality. In 1971, the US Congress has made Aug 26 into a nationally recognized date and named it “Women’s Equality Day”. The president of the United States is summoned to commemorate this date each year.
It is only logical that GoTopless Day protests (or celebrations depending on the legal status of your city) would fall around Women’s Equality Day since the right to go topless for women is based on gender equality as their right to vote once was.
On Sunday Aug. 28, people in cities around the world are invited to stand up for women’s right to go topless in public. Please contact us if you would like to organize an event in your area so we can list your venue on our “Boob Map” 2016 . (Please refer to our legal map in our section topless laws to know the topless status in your state and call your DA to know what your city’s is)
Go top less event is organized world wide by ‘gotopless.org’ U.S.-based organization founded in 2007 by spiritual leader Rael and we claim that women have the same constitutional right that men have to go bare-chested in public.
“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)
Gotopless org want to make it complete gender equality because humans, regardless of gender will naturally help one another and go with a peaceful coexistence.
And the slogan goes like,
FREE YOUR BREASTS! FREE YOUR MIND!
