As we discovered yesterday, there are women in Arizona who would like the right to stroll around town topless.

To illustrate this point, topless women will be walking around downtown Phoenix on Sunday as part of "Go Topless Day," which is being billed as a protest against gender inequality.

An event organizer said women have to wear tape covering their entire nipples -- areola included -- to keep things legal during the stroll around Phoenix, which police confirmed is the case.

The movement has a case, since it's perfectly legal to put droopy man-boobs on public display, but lady-boobs are always a no-go.

Several places across the country have "topless equality" -- like New York City -- so how about Arizona?
