Free the nipple

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you and then you win – this Mahatma Gandhi ideology it’s getting its second breath. When talk about 21st century woman’s rights or equality it sounds like an old fashioned thing, but surprisingly, it has never been as trending as it is nowadays. I’m not so sure in which stage women activists are now, but, undoubtedly, they crossed the ignorance level. Ladies, world’s eyes are on you.

Free the nipple

If few years ago it could be possible to hear about small groups of FEMIN protesters from eastern Europe, today you can see Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus and many other celebrities without bra supporting a worldwide movement called #freethenipple. This movement has been fostered by dedicated active women and spread out like a virus, first on Instagram, later on the streets, eventually taking over more than 60 cities around the world. Free the nipple

If you are curious enough about this social movement, you can perceive it in two different manners.

 On the one hand – they fight for the equal approach to men and women nipple in the world wide press. This confrontation started due to Instagram and other social network censorship regulations, which considered any kind of feminine nipple as an obscene image. For some reasons nudity as a matter of gender has gained different tolerance level and this fact driven women crazy.

On the other hand – In relation to the activism on the streets, the movement has digressed on a different topic supporting the rights for public breastfeeding as a natural process.  In this reference, some countries perceive breastfeeding as something that is naturally acceptable but, in others, women are being punished for such behavior. Still, it seems ironic that women have never wanted to be so equal with men and so feminine at the same time.

Nevertheless, woman nature is all about seeking for attention, so what if all these protests are just a part of a self-expression? After all, we always crave for something new, for some deviations.
