From Immoral to Unaesthetic

Fewer French women are choosing to go topfree on beaches, but it's not because the rebellious spirit of feminism which began the tradition in the 60s and 70s has abated, but rather because women feel less confident in their bodies.
"But what has been projected onto it today are different values, identified, not with equality but desire, sexualisation of the body, voluptuousness and the body perfect. It's less about women feeling at ease and free. It has been linked to the harsh cult of the body beautiful, where no imperfection is tolerated."
