Topless women protest their right to sunbathe bare-breasted

Topless women flooded to the streets of Argentina in a protest after being confronted by police for having their breasts out on a beach.

The demonstrations in Buenos Aires, in Mar del Plata and Rosario, saw hundreds of fully-dressed protesters marching alongside those who were topless.

Action was prompted by an incident two weeks ago in Necochea.

Three women in bikini bottoms were reportedly ordered to put their tops on or leave the beach by 20 police officers.

Women painted phrases across their chests for the protests, which read: ‘Censura esta’ – ‘Censor this’.

Many in Argentina, once one of the world’s wealthiest countries, were stunned at the incident a fortnight ago.

One protester, Noelia, 28, said that women not being able to sunbathe topless was a ‘macho way of thinking’.

She said: ‘It just has to end. We are the owners of our bodies and we can show our bodies if we like. We are not consumer goods.’

Politician Vilma Ripoll said: ‘All people want to see tits on television. The real ones bother you.’

Last July, thousands of women took part in topless protests across the country after a woman was kicked out of a public area near the capital for nursing her child, triggering widespread outrage.
