At an Auckland beach,a group of protesters stripped off on Saturday to fight for the Free the Nipple movement. About 40 protesters rid themselves of their bras at Mission Bay, New Zealand, to stand behind the movement, which has been making serious waves right across the world.
Organiser Grace Blundell, 22, abandoned her top for the cause, which she said she felt extremely passionate about.
‘Personally I want women to be able to have the choice, I want women to feel comfortable wearing whatever they want and not feel like they’re being sexualised,’ she said. ‘I don’t want to feel like I’m going to be judged by what I wear just because of my gender.’It started from a young age even when I wasn’t wearing revealing clothing,’. ‘It taught me that my body was inherently sexual, and I definitely don’t think that should be the case.’
Ms Blundell,as a result of the exercise said she felt the need to stand up for change, however controversial it might be.
Groups of tourists and other beach-goers bombarded the protesters, pointing their cameras at them to take photos, as they looked on in amazement.
