This year, GoTopless Day is Sunday, Aug. 25, one day before Women’s Equality Day, because Aug 26 happens to fall on a Monday. 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 be based on 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. In British Columbia, we will get together in Whistler for the first time.
