August 26th is Women’s Equality Day. It is the day when women in the U.S. earned the right to vote. But when it comes to real equality we still have a long way to go.
One major right that is still being denied to women these days is the right to be topless in public. It may not be important to some, but others feel like it should be entirely within their rights to go topless in places where men aren't expected to wear shirts.
It seems that no matter how forward thinking we have become, most people still have an issue with women exposing their breasts in public. Which is crazy if you think about it.

Nothing illustrates this point better than the following picture:
Luckily, there is a movement called Go Topless Day that organizes a protest every year on the Sunday that falls closest to Women’s Equality Day.
But this year, because it's the 10th anniversary, the event will take place on the same day as Women's Equality Day, Saturday August 26th.
