Topless advocate on hunger strike
An advocate fighting for the right for women to go topless is on a hunger strike in a New Jersey jail after refusing to pay a 2008 fine for going topless at a Spring Lake beach.
She has been on a hunger strike since Monday. "State and local laws are all over the map on the issue of women's topless rights," said Nadine Gary, spokesperson for GoTopless.org, a group that claims women have a constitutional right to go topless in public on the basis of gender equality.
The GoTopless.org organization will hold its 6th annual GoTopless Day protests on August 25, including an event in Times Square.
