Thought provoking at the least
15 December 2014 | by (Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews

Having watched this film purely out of curiosity towards the movement it really has swayed me to believe in it. It is not just about giving women the opportunity to walk around the streets topless just as many men do freely in the summer months, in fact it's hardly about that at all. It's about societies approach to female nudity and how we are censored from birth, forced into a mindset that sees nudity as obscene and something that should be avoided at all cost. It is the basis by which women and men are seen as completely different and therefore treated completely different. Woman have nipples, men have nipples, yet just because women have a little more behind theirs they must cover them up? When you really think about it, it's so clearly wrong.

The film was an interesting look at the approach of activists and, although clearly made on a budget, it gives a small insight into the amount that some people sacrifice in order to get a few others to think about something for just a few seconds in the hopes of evolving the way our society works.
