This Thread has a lot of references to women’s bare breasts being “legally considered” nudity whereas a man’s bare chest is not. I know that this is actually not true in a few areas in the United States. Some places have the laws written to specify that a topless woman can not be prosecuted for indecent exposure and, in fact, is free to be as topless in public as she wants to be.
Can anyone give a comprehensive list of the jurisdictions in the United States where a woman is free to bare her breasts in public?
It is also my understanding that, in these places, even though a woman does have this right, very few women ever chose to exercise the right. Can folks elaborate on this as well?
