It takes a lot of courage these days for anyone to take a stand in support of freedom for the female breast.
Advocates for topfree equality know the name of Liz Book, the Florida woman who has bared her breasts for equality and has suffered the consequences for her activism. Recently she was interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel and spoke about how she began her life of protest.
I saw a police officer and I asked him how many women were being arrested for breast exposure. He told me, "probably a couple hundred." My indignation for what these women would suffer as I had suffered, what this would do to their futures, overshadowed any fear I had of confronting Big Brother.Anyone who reads Book's interview should be frightened by how sexist and abusive the law can be towards women. Liz has endured arrests, threats and abuse for her cause, and while she has a lot of support, there seem to be very few women willing to put it all on the line as she has done time and time again.
But Liz is going to give women everywhere a chance to do more than talk on March 8, 2008, a day she calls International Women's Day Top-Free Stand. She plans to be in Daytona Beach coming at the authorities once again, and the time would never be better for thousands of women everywhere to join Liz in her cause by baring their breasts for equality.
