HOW FAR WILL YOU GO FOR EQUALITY ?

FREE THE NIPPLE

 

FREE THE NIPPLE IS A FILM, AN EQUALITY MOVEMENT, AND A MISSION TO EMPOWER WOMEN ACROSS THE WORLD TO STAND AGAINST FEMALE OPPRESSION AND CENSORSHIP, BOTH IN THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE GLOBE. TODAY, IN THE USA IT IS EFFECTIVELY ILLEGAL FOR A WOMEN TO BE TOPLESS, BREASTFEEDING INCLUDED, IN 35 STATES. IN LESS TOLERANT PLACES LIKE LOUISIANA, AN EXPOSED NIPPLE CAN TAKE A WOMAN TO JAIL UP FOR THREE YEAR AND COST $2,500 IN FINES. EVEN IN NEW YORK CITY, WHICH LEGALIZED PUBLIC TOPLESSNESS IN 1992, THE NYPD CONTINUES TO ARREST WOMEN.FREE THE NIPPLE HAS BECOME A "REAL LIFE" EQUALITY MOVEMENT THAT'S SPARKED A NATIONAL DIALOGUE.

FAMOUS GRAFFITI ARTISTS, GROUPS OF DEDICATED WOMEN, AND INFLUENCERS SUCH AS MILEY CYRUS, LIV TYLER AND LENA DUNHAM HAVE SHOWN PUBLIC SUPPORT WHICH GARNERED WHICH GARNERED INTERNATIONAL PRESS AND CREATED A VIRAL #FREETHENIPPLE CAMPAIGN.
