“I thought about it, and found out it was legal,” said Bolton, 37, noting that a 1992 court ruling in New York allows women to bare their breasts in public, just as men do. “Besides, I support equal rights for women. I’m not ashamed of it.”
On Thursday, Bolton, a computer aide and resident of White Plains, was reassigned from Woodlands High School to the district’s administration building after she was grilled about the film in a “questioning” that was part of Greenburgh’s disciplinary protocol.
On Friday, she received a “letter of counsel” from Mary O’Neill, Greenburgh’s assistant superintendent for business, who had seen photographs from the film’s Dec. 11 premiere at the International Film Center in Manhattan, at which Bolton was photographed topless.
