The challenges the topless activists of Free The Nipple face on Maui

When I spoke to the lead organizer for the Maui Free The Nipple chapter (who I’ll call Topless Theresa to respect her privacy), I asked her many questions about their cause. She’s clearly passionate about gender equality rights and what it means to her. Listening to her stories, and being in her company, got me thinking about my own relationship to my breasts and how social conditioning has affected me. While it’s highly unlikely I’ll go topless in public on Maui, I also don’t care what other people do. Seeing women topless in public doesn’t concern me one bit. These women are awesome and gutsy, and I respect their mission.

“I feel like we’re taking our boobs back,” said Topless Theresa. “Society wants to sell boobs. But guess what, I can wear mine for free…“
