Should women be allowed go topless?

A young woman was 'escorted off the premises' by Gardai at a music festival over the weekend for being topless.
She spoke to Philip Boucher Hayes on the radio today and pointed out that lots of men were topless and some were even down to their underwear, it was very hot and she wanted to cool down like everyone else. She also was making a political point in favour of gender equality and in opposition to sexual objectification.
So why should women not be granted the same freedoms as men in this regard?
And how is it a matter of 'public indecency' for a woman to be topless and not a man?

Yes of course they should , and for the fit ones it should be mandatory.

Where are all feminist lobbyists when they can actually lobby for something useful?

She was a remarkably articulate, persuasive and polite young lady. If she is the future of the country, it's in very good hands.

For shame that so many of her peers had to emigrate since 2010.

Do you mind, we're talking about breasts here!

Though your "in very good hands" was a good one, fair play.

What law was she breaking?

There's a time and a place for that sort of talk, but discussing the pros and cons of exposing the female breast isn't it.

Have a care, Sir!

In my own view, it's an age thing.
I have so much to learn. I blame it on being a dad to daughters

From Journal article

“I am referring, of course, to the Free the Nipple movement"

Of course...The Free the Nipple movement (seriously?) Eagerly awaiting Amnesty International's po faced pronouncement on this.
