They have a point here.
Topless women will be walking around downtown Phoenix on Sunday as part of what's being billed as a protest against gender inequality.

"Go Topless Day" apparently exists on an international level, in an effort to make laws about showing woman-boobs and man-boobs the same.

If guys can walk down the street "topless," then Phoenix "Go Topless Day" organizer Jenna Duffy tells New Times women should be able to do it too.

Either that, or dudes have to cover up all the time when they're in public, she says.

"Breasts are such an object of sex and desire," Duffy says. "And were saying, 'Hey, they're just breasts.'"

Indeed. There are rules to participating in the event, since the whole purpose to the event is that women in many places can not walk around topless.

Duffy explains that women have to wear tape covering their entire nipples -- areola included -- to keep things legal during the stroll around Phoenix. Men are encouraged to participate too, and should either tape up their nipples or wear bikini tops. If you'd rather keep everything clothed, that's cool too.

When asked why walking around topless was the chosen method of protest, Duffy explained that it's "just one of those small things that contributes toward equality."

The legality of female breast-showing varies across the United States -- ladies can go full-breast in New York City! -- and Phoenix police Sergeant Trent Crump tells New Times the local protest will be legal as long as the ladies keep their nipples and areolas completely covered.

Duffy says she has about 10 women and 10 men lined up so far for the protest -- approximately 40 breasts -- for this weekend's stroll.

If you're into that kind of thing, it starts at 10 a.m. Sunday at Steele Indian School Park, and will continue down Central Avenue.

Congratulations for providing free entertainment for the men of the valley.  My dirty old man of a father just got back from taking pics and staring lecherously.  I am sure your pics will provide him with hours of slap happy entertainment.  BTW, the skin on your crotch is just skin, why shouldn't you be able to expose that in public too?  Perhaps it has something to do with the overt sexual connotation----- like breasts.

When I was living in a beach area of Florida with my two young daughters, (wondering at what age they would have to cover up), I actually found & read the actual ordinance that prohibited topless female sub bathing on local beaches......... the law was blatantly discriminatory as are probably most of these laws everywhere. Check a biology book or source to find out "why men have nipples"

It's legal in New york because men can do it. It's about being equal. Arizona actually accepting something like this boggles mind when we'd rather be rounding up people that look illegal.

Personally I think I will be there to witness this atrocious act of defiance. This kind of stuff would not be allowed in Pinal County, where the shurf grabs the closest man boob available. What size tape is going to used this weekend, I wonder? :-)

In Michigan, it's too cold. Not in Phoenix, except at night. And they can't make spectacles of themselves after dark.

I think it's a bit of a stupid issue to be up in arms over, and that it harms the cause of true feminism more than helps it, but...hell, do what you want!

Where this world is going...men and women are not the same and you can not apply same rules on them. Women can be topless only in their homes, nowhere else !!!

jipiteca, since you have a vowel at the end of your name, you go about 5 minutes, make some lame excuse, roll over and go to sleep.

Could someone please explain to me how covering the nipple/areola makes a woman's breast less sexual?

 @catader Wow dirty old men came out, what a shocker! Was your dad the 500 lbs. pervert? I'm sure the photos will, thanks for telling me that, I understand your male need to put females down all the time by making them uncomfortable...sad. The skin on your crotch is just skin, so can't you show yours? We're not asking for more rights than men, just the same we have no desire to show our vulvas... there's a different name for those who do.... Don't you think I find a well sculpted hairy man chest sexy? I do, but somehow I control myself and get on with my day. Oh and I don't try to make him feel like shit either.

 @evansraven Heck yeah, why not? Unless you're a fag. I'm straight and I love boobies.
