Free the a nipple wins temporary victory in Missouri


Judge orders temporary stop to ‘nipple law’ in Missouri city

The issue heated up last summer when two women affiliated with an organization called “Free the Nipple” held a topless rally to dispute a city ordinance on exposure that required women to cover their nipples. After that rally, the city council passed a stricter ordinance that requires most of the female breast to be covered.

The ACLU, which sued on behalf of rally organizers, argues the new ordinance criminalizes free expression by women and subjects them to “inferior legal status.”

Tony Rothert, ACLU of Missouri’s legal director, said the ACLU’s view is that “if the city wants to treat men and women differently, they have to justify it with something more than it offends their moral sensibilities.”

Besides the injunction, proceedings on the case have been stayed for 60 days. A joint status report is due March 23.

    I love this line:

    “if the city wants to treat men and women differently, they have to justify it with something more than it offends their moral sensibilities.”

    That says everything.

    Although it maybe temporary it’s a minor victory for the rights of all of us.
