Women In Montreal Will Be Allowed To Go Topless In Public This Summer 2017

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.

  • National Go Topless Day


  • Saturday, August 26th  


  • Monument Sir George Etienne Cartier - Mount Royal Park
