Go Topless Day

The annual event, also referred to as GoTopless Day, National Go Topless Day and/or International Go Topless Day, is observed on the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day, an annual holiday that commemorates the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.

Rael, the spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement and founder of, founded the annual “holiday” back in 2007 to help raise awareness about breast inequality. According to the Rael,

"As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right. Or else, men should have to wear something to hide their chests."

In honor of Go Topless Day, men and women around the globe will take part in various topless rallies, protests and marches to show their "support" for women's rights to go bare up there in public. Folks in Paris, Vancouver, Toronto, London, Amsterdam, Geneva, Tel Aviv and 30 cities across America are expected to attend this year's event.
