Topless images in Missoula high school paper stir concern
The images were published alongside an article about the “Free the Nipple” campaign, a national effort to allow girls and women to be topless in same situations that men and boys are allowed to be topless.
The district is trying to recall every copy of the issue, which was released Wednesday at Willard and three MCPS high schools – Big Sky, Hellgate and Sentinel.
MCPS spokeswoman Hatton Littman says the district is not releasing any statements or conducting on-camera interviews regarding the publication at this time.
Investigators are still trying to figure out the identities of the people involved and it’s unclear if the topless individuals are students or if they are over 18.
Six topless individuals appear in the front page photo, and two others appear in another photo inside the paper
