More than 50 women marched through downtown Vancouver on Sunday, baring their breasts in the name of gender equality.
The march was part of a national campaign organized by GoTopless, a women’s organization fighting for equal topless rights.
Organizers said similar marches were happening in 45 cities around the world.
“Being topless in B.C. is legal. We have the right to be topless and this is wonderful,” GoTopless spokeswoman Denise Belisle said to a photo-snapping crowd that followed the marchers to Vancouver’s Robson Square.
“What we need is respect. We need respect from society, we need respect from all of you.”
