Angered by what they regarded as discrimination, a group of women in southern Sweden established the Bara Bröst Network in 2007. The group (which translates both as “bare breasts” and “just breasts”) started a campaign for Swedish women to be allowed to swim topless at a pool in the city of Uppsala. They were ejected from the pool but didn’t stop at that. The Bare Breasts Network also wants to follow the local custom of fans taking off their tops every time their football team scores a goal.
“We want our breasts to be as normal and desexualized as men’s so that we too can pull off our shirts at football matches,” spokeswomen Astrid Hellroth Ambjörnsson told Ottar, a magazine published by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education. “Our aim is to start a debate about the unwritten social and cultural rules that sexualize and discriminate against the female body.”
If only this movement would spread to North America where female public toplessness is generally considered “indecent exposure.” (Not by me!) It would help make finding potential new SCORE models so much easier. What can I say? That’s how my mind operates.
In recent years, European musicians and music producers have leeched onto the name “Bara Bröst” for their own usage and products, diluting the name of the original organization. No good deed goes unpunished.
