Asheville, N.C., Feb. 8: GoTopless (Go Topless.org) an organization fighting for the right of women to move about topless decided to oppose North Carolina State Rep. Tim Moffitt’s proposed a bill that would make it illegal for women to go topless in public.
The organization vowed to oppose such legislation every step of the way.
"Though we've explained our viewpoint many times during GoTopless rallies over the last two years, politicians are still missing the entire point," said GoTopless President Nadine Gary in a statement. "Our rallies are aimed at bringing attention to a serious matter of unconstitutional, unequal treatment: In much of the United States, women are still persecuted or arrested for going topless, while men aren't”.
She said if Moffitt's bill becomes law, that law will clearly be unconstitutional, since men will enjoy a privilege denied to women.
Gary added that although the U.S. Constitution and many state constitutions emphasize equality under the law, the issue of equal topless rights has been unjustly ignored.
This is what the GoTopless organization says about itself…..
We are a U.S.-based organization founded in 2007 by spiritual leader Rael and we claim that women have the same constitutional right that men have to go bare-chested in public.
"As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right. Or else, men should have to wear something to hide their chests" Rael, founder of GoTopless.org and spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement (rael.org)
