For the fifth consecutive year, Go Topless Day will take over the 16th Street Mall In Denver on Sunday, August 26.

Organizers of the event put it together to show that "men and women can embrace topless equality while promoting respect and healthy boundaries."

That the event this year falls on Women's Equality Day is no accident. Women's Equality Day was begun after the women's suffrage movement gained the vote for women in America. Many see this issue as more of the same thing.

Over 20 such events are scheduled to take place in the United States to bring the issue of gender equality, specifically the right for women to go topless, as men do, into the light, as well as throughout the world.

Those who attend Go Topless Day will walk the 16th Street Mall to the steps of the capitol building. While female toplessness is not banned in Denver, it is in other cities, and that is why the even exists, to give women the same right as men as far as being able to go topless is concerned.

There is also body painting available as well as musical guests and a photo opportunity in front of the Capitol building before returning to Skyline Park for entertaining and socializing.

The organizers of the event hope to see female toplessness allowed everywhere, much as they were given the right to vote.
