Thanks for sharing! Have you participated in this? What is it like? I bet it's so empowering.
Yes. I assist our chair. She does all the publicity & interviews, I do the permit & grunt work. She is very serious about this right. I am old, and still trying to push forward the EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT. But yes, it is great fun, especially because you are in a large group, and can enjoy the freedom of sun and breezes on your skin, and not feel self- conscious. Some men do go to gawk, and we try to use this parade to desensitize them to their 'breast=sex" conditioning. Some women write sayings like "I'm still not saying yes." on their torsos. A few wear masks. I asked one, who comes every year, why. Turns out she is a pre-school teacher, and just wants "no trouble. " Sad, but reality, breasts are bad for children?
Sorry about your mom. I see you are a writer. I m hoping for some 'first person' reports.
Thank you. I really appreciate that.
It sounds like a very freeing experience. There's something similar that happens in Philly with the No Pants Subway ride. I'm still not too sure I'd ever be willing to participate, but I love the idea of it and it's a great way to send a message that bodies are something more than sexual.
Come and cheer the women then.
Join millions of women who have found their dream jobs and internships on Mogul.
Equality is to give the same chances, equity is to give chances to succeed according to their differences, and empowerment is to enable them to succeed. I would say that we start with equality, then with equity, to finally empower them.
