Press release: GoTopless Aug 21, 2011 is National GoTopless Day

With the slogan, “Topless equal rights for all or none,” GoTopless.org is summoning men across America to cover their chests on Aug. 21 in the name of equal rights.

On that day, for the fourth consecutive year, the U.S.-based organization will stage a national GoTopless Day protest to proclaim a woman’s constitutional right to go bare-chested in public. During the protest, while participating women go bare, male participants will cover their chests with bikini tops or bras to proclaim equal rights for both genders.

Sound ridiculous?

“It’s no more ridiculous than women having to wear tops at all time in this double-standard, topless battle that’s being waged in public and in the courts,” said Nadine Gary, president of GoTopless.org.

For Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement and founder of GoTopless.org, the equation is simple: "As long as men can go topless, either women should have the same constitutional right or men should also be forced to wear something that hides their chests.”

“We will force men to legally cover up if women can’t go bare,” agreed Gary, who is also a Raelian priestess. “After 4 years, our national protests are starting to bear fruit, for a growing number of women across the country are reaching out to us. They’re beginning to feel empowered by our demonstrations and the constitutional message we bring.”

Obama Proclaims Aug 26, Women's Equality Day

see his 2011 Proclamation below

The annual proclamation of Women's Equality Day has also become National GoTopless. In 2012, GoTopless will fall precisely on Aug 26 2012. People around the country are encouraged to stand up and protest for the Constitutional equal right of women to go topless or to simply encourage women in topless states to exercise their topless right.

A GoTopless protest in Washington DC in front of the White House

For the first time in American history, topless women will protest in front of the White Housel and stand up for their right to bare their chest in public.

If almost one hundred years ago that day, our constitution gave women the equal right to vote on the basis of equal rights, it must give women the right to be topless on the same gender equality basis.

On Aug 26, 2012, GoTopless will remit tens of thousands of signed petitions for women's constitutional right to go topless in public to the US Governement.
Gotopless will also send a special letter to President Obama addressing this women's right injustice because as all US presidents since 1971, he must formally acknowledge Women's Equality Day and the inequality struggles American women face at that moment.

GoTopless supports Slut Walk

The affiliates of GoTopless.org have been closely following the developments of the Slutwalk Movement since its inception and we embrace it 100%! This is how the worldwide Slut Protest began: a Canadian police officer advised women "to avoid dressing as sluts" if they did not want to be harassed.

Our plight for Constitutional equality in topless rights, we are encountering "moral" opposition on the basis that women's breasts in public may arouse sexual desire and therefore must be duly outlawed at all cost! (Of course, what part of the woman's body is not likely to arouse sexual desire, suggesting that a burqa would be the best alternative to barrage all sexual provocation!) This legal battle to go topless in public is "naturally" associated with the plight of "sluts" by repressed minds who have a pathologically distorted view of sexuality, of the human body in general.
