Should women be barred from going topless?

Posted April 05, 2010, at 3:23 p.m.

A demonstration by some two-dozen women in Portland on Saturday asserted their right to appear in public without covering their upper bodies.

Though the women created a stir among those on the street, they did not break any laws. Currently, it is legal for women to appear topless in public.

Should this law be changed? Is appearing topless lewd behavior? Or is it natural, and just as natural as it is for men to take off their shirts?
