In New York City, a small group of passionate women launch a revolution movement to "Free the Nipple" and decriminalize the female body. Based on a true story, this mass movement of topless women, armed with First Amendment lawyers, graffiti installations and national publicity stunts, invade New York City to protest the backwards censorship laws in the USA. The film centers on a liberal journalist, named With, who sees potential in a story and hooks herself up with the group of women, led by the idealistic and eccentric Liv, and works with the close-knit of to follow the group in their quest.Written by
This film raised a point that many people want to ignore or shame. Female sexuality is represented in vastly different ways in society. We claim to be equal, but if that's the case why is it against the law for women to go shirtless and not men? It's an important example of unequal gender barriers and this movie tries to explore ways we can change those skewed views into something that benefits everyone. I fear that many people judged this movie before watching it. They shamed it without giving it a chance. If you think this movie is a free show or a gimmick, it's not. This movie is about female empowerment and women owning their bodies. It is about the everyday ways women are undermined by outdated and unfair laws. It is about trying to generate change and how sometimes you have to stand as a small group while fighting for millions.
