Free The Nipple
Free The Nipple is a film, an equality movement, and a mission to empower women across the world. Inspired by true events, Free The Nipple follows a group of young women who take to the streets of New York City topless, to protest the archaic censorship laws in the United States.The film explores the contradictions in our media-dominated society, where acts of violence and killing are glorified, while images of a woman’s body are censored by the FCC and the MPAA. What is more obscene: Violence or a Nipple?We need to de-sexualize a non sexual body part, yes non-sexual meaning it isn't there to play with they are there to feed offspring. We 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 woman to be topless, breastfeeding included, in 35 states. In less tolerant places like Louisiana, an exposed nipple can take a woman to jail for up to three years and cost $2,500 in fines. Even in New York City, which legalized public toplessness in 1992, the NYPD continues to arrest women. We’re working to change these inequalities through film, social media, and a grassroots campaign. Why does having more breast tissue make a nipple slutty and above all illegal? The USA is supposed to be land of the free yet a woman can't take her top off at the beach? She has to specifcally go to a "nude" beach? Let's show support for all the ladies out there and share this with as many people as you can!
