NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This Sunday, August 24, the women's rights organization GoTopless will hold Go Topless Pride Parades and other events in New York City and over 60 other cities worldwide for the 7th annual GoTopless Day, according to a statement released today by GoTopless.
"New York is the ideal location for the world's first GoTopless Pride Parade," said Rachel Jessee, GoTopless spokesperson and leader of GoTopless in NYC. "Since 1992, it's been one of the few cities in the United States or the world where women's topless rights are already recognized by law."
She said her organization is inviting both men and women "to stand up with topless pride" on Sunday in honor of Women's Equality Day.
"There's nothing more empowering for a woman than to free her body from the shackles of repression," Jesse said. "Freeing her body allows her to free her mind as well, and also to mend her self-image and self-esteem."
Jesse said "topless and joyful performances" will take place all Sunday afternoon as the GoTopless Pride Parade makes its way from Columbus Circle through Times Square to Bryant Park. The parade will begin at 2 p.m.
"After the parade, all participants are welcome to end the GoTopless Day festivities with a fun get-together at the Boobie Trap, a recently opened, boob-themed bar in Brooklyn," Jessee added.
She said her organization's goal is to make female toplessness "a non-event."
"We hope that by participating in annual topless festivities, New York City women and women around the world will feel increasingly comfortable to go topless in public," Jessee said. "When a woman's uncovered chest in public becomes the simple non-event it already is for a man, we will have accomplished our mission."
"In the IoT space we are helping customers, mostly enterprises and industry verticals where time-to-value is critical, and we help them with the ability to do faster insights and actions using our platform so they can transform their business operations," explained Venkat Eswara, VP of Marketing at Vitria, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
