Is the world ready for no shirt, no shoes, no problem?

It appears that many women throughout the US believe they should have the same right to go without a shirt as men do. I agree and for all the same arguments presented in this article. The only thing that would surprise me is if ANYTHING would happen here in Wichita as to "Go Topples Day." This is the most socially conservative and anal retentive  community I have ever lived in.

 From F5:
What do Miley Cyrus, Liv Tyler and Lena Dunham have in common? All three of them are passionately involved in a titillating cause that's ready to take the world on in a bare-chested brawl.
These women, and many other people of all genders, are part of the Free The Nipple movement.
The movement, which has over 90,000 tagged posts on Instagram and over 100,000 followers on their official Twitter account, aims to equalize the rights of men and women.
Throughout the nation, women who dare to bare can receive fines and even jail time. Even in places where female public toplessness has been legalized, such as New York City, women are still arrested for this act.
The Free The Nipple movement is not just about allowing women to walk around without shirts or breastfeeding in public.
Over the years society has turned a natural action into a shameful behavior. Women are expected to cover themselves for the sake of modesty.
Society's sexualization of the female body has become the ultimate roadblock in the way of allowing women the same rights as men. Men can walk around at a beach in America without a top on and not be seen as sexual objects while a woman doing the same thing would be gawked at.
Though Free The Nipple (#FreeTheNipple) is getting a lot of attention in the world of social media, it is not the only movement attempting to normalize female toplessness.
Other organizations, such as GoTopless.Org and the Topfree Equal Rights Association, are fighting the same fight.
Legally, women have the right to go outside without a shirt in most of the states, including Kansas.
GoTopless.Org has a list of states that legally allow female toplessness alongside a list of cities that have been "topless tested."
