Default GoTopless Day

GoTopless Day 2013 will fall on Sunday Aug. 25. 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. 25, people in cities around the world are invited to stand up for women's right to go topless in public.

They have a website (). You can put the URL together if you want

I think I'm going to goto the event in NYC to keep abreast of what is going on.

I thought it had to do with removal of targa tops and hardtops - kind of like "Drive your Vette to work Day".

I must say, I like the sound of this one even better!

In Canada, every day is topless day. It is legal for women to be topless in public areas.

Canada rocks!

Canadian women are smart enough to know to not go out topless when the temperature dips below -40c.

The only women in Canada are strippers from the U.S.

That's actually a pretty nice bike. Needs to lose the weight on the rear (take her to a livestock auction and get a check five days later ). Just took a bull calf to auction last week and got a check for $680. He was 7 months old and weighed in at 640 pounds.
