Go Topless Day 2014 in Phoenix

1 of 25
More than two-dozen Valley residents and women’s rights activists gathered at Steele Indian School Park on Sunday, August 24, before shedding their shirts, blouses, and bras and marching along Central Avenue in honor of the nationwide observance of Go Topless Day 2014. Like with similar demonstrations taking place in cities across the U.S., the Phoenix version of the event involved participants of both sexes going topless for all to see (save for homemade pasties covering their nipples) in order to protest the inequality of current laws that allow men but forbid women from baring their breasts in public.
