Pittsburgh topless rally winds up anything but

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh rally planned by a group hoping to Celebrate Women’s Equality Day by having women march topless alongside men in bikinis turned out to be anything but.

Fewer than a dozen protesters showed up Sunday, and none of the women bared their tops — though a handful of men did.

The organizers of GoTopless.org say they believe it’s unfair that women cannot be topless in public while men can.

Still, the female protesters wore pasties, duct tape, bras or bikini tops after being advised that it’s against the law for them to expose their entire breasts.

Organizers expected more than 60 people to show up based on Facebook posts, but fewer than one-fifth that many marched from a downtown hotel to Point State Park.
