DENVER (CBS4)– Hundreds of men and women decided to go topless for the Go Topless Day event at Civic Center Park in Sunday.

The event organizers say the day is to recognize women’s rights to go topless in public and desexualize the public perception of female toplessness.

They picked Sunday because it was close to Aug. 26 or Women’s Equality Day to commemorate the day women earned the right to vote in the U.S.
