National Topless Protest Day 

When: Sat., Aug. 23, 12 p.m. 2008
“As long as men can go topless, women should have a same and equal right,” says Rael, leader of the International Raelian Movement. (Yeah, he’s the French journalist whose “dramatic encounter with a human being from another planet” led him to found the organization, dedicated to understanding the extraterrestrial origins of life on earth.) According to Chicago’s municipal code a woman can be fined $100-$500 for going shirtless in public, and though a spokesperson says the group is talking to local officials to get around that for the protest, she also noted that “the majority of the local Raelian membership is male,” adding “they are extremely proud to be a part of this effort.”
