It’s easy for men to go topless and harder for women, but at least for one day, that will all change. This year marks the 7th anniversary of Go Topless Day and on Sunday, August 24, people in cities around the world (including Vancouver) are invited to stand up for women’s right to go topless in public.

Unlike many other cities in North America, Vancouver women have the legal right go topless, however, the authorities still force women to cover up if they are to bare their breasts in public. The issue here has to do more with society’s inability to allow such a thing without others feeling some level of perversion or awkwardness.

Go Topless Day is a 24-hour period when ladies are encouraged to show their breasts as a protest against hypocritical global laws and norm that allow men to walk around shirtless while women must remain clothed.

Men don’t have to feel left out as they can also support the movement as well. Those men who support the mission are asked to cover their own man-boobs with pasties or bras.

However, if it’s anything like last year’s march, the men that will be in attendance will be there snapping photos of bare breasted women.
