“GoTopless Day” for 2016 will fall on Sunday Aug. 28. GoTopless Day always falls at the Sunday closest to Women’s Equality Day which is August 26. It was on August 26, 1920 that women earned their right to vote on the basis of Gender Equality. In 1971, the US Congress has made August 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. So it’s a REAL THING, not one of those made up days to sell Hallmark cards.

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. 28, people in cities around the world are invited to stand up for women’s right to go topless in public. Please contact  GoTopless if you would like to organize an event in your area and they can list your venue on their “Boob Map” 2016. More info can be found at http://gotopless.org/gotopless-day

    Dumb and immature! This is the most sexist display of all. Why do women have to go braless to show they are equal? What a poor example for smart, young girls! Go on your merits, ladies.

    I don’t know who had the brilliant idea to include that photo at the top of the article, but, they may have missed a small detail. The women in the photo are not topless. Bringing a bra from home to wave in the air is NOT the same. They could have done that any day of the year.
