Go Topless: Woman sues Chicago

Here’s a case everyone who follows this blog may want to rally around . . .

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that “A Japanese woman who was fined $100 by Chicago Police  for exposing her breasts at North Street Beach on national “Go Topless Day” has filed a federal lawsuit against the city. Sonoko Tagami alleges Chicago’s public decency ordinance violates the 1st and 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution because it allows men to bare their breasts in public but denies women that same right.”

As my regular readers know, I am supporter of the Go Topless movement. I reported on Montreal event, which you can find the link for at the top of the page. Women should have the same rights men have when it comes to baring our tops in public.

Here’s the link to the Chicago Sun-Times article. There’s a video there, too.

P.S. The newspaper report’s mention that the woman is Japanese is significant only because she has since returned to Japan.

  1. Sonoko did not go back to Japan, she moved to California the week after as planned. So this intended mistake was to mention her origin. Very sneaky.
