What is “National GO Topless Day?” And who founded it & why?
The event falls around Women’s Equality Day and is an annual event held to support the right of women to go topless in public on gender-equality grounds. The event was founded by Rael, the spiritual leader behind the Raelian Movement, in response to the arrest of Phoenix Feeley, a topless activist who was arrested for going topless in New York in 2005.
Toplessness has been legal in NY since ’92 & topless models are allowed to be painted in the middle of Times Square. So, Feeley scored a $29,000 settlement from the city for her wrongful arrest.
Do you agree that we have a double standard that just isn’t fair? If so come on out on August 28th and show your support at Caliente Resort a Spa & #FreeTheNipple!
