Topless swimmers make waves


Stockholm (Sweden): A group of Swedish women is making waves by taking their tops off at public swimming pools in a protest against what they call gender-biased rules on swim wear.
About 40 women have joined the network and staged topless protests in at least three cities, said Sanna Ferm, 22, one of the founders of the group called Bara Brost, or Bare Breasts.
"The purpose of the campaign is to start a debate about why women's bodies are sexualised," Ferm said on Wednesday.
She said the fact that men can be bare-chested in public swimming pools but not women is "a concrete example of how women have fewer rights than men."
Reactions from other swimmers have ranged from support and encouragement to anger and even indifference, she said.
The network was formed after two women who were swimming topless in a public swimming pool in Uppsala, north of Stockholm, were asked to cover up or leave.
Women can sunbathe topless in the summertime at beaches around Sweden, which is known for its relaxed attitude toward nudity, but they are required to wear tops at public swimming pools.
Inger Groteblad, a manager at the swimming facility in Uppsala, said it was a matter of security.
"We want to make sure that girls don't get subjected to sexual harassment," she was quoted as saying by tabloid Aftonbladet.
The women have filed a complaint against the facility to Sweden's Equal Opportunities Ombudsman.

I'd like to impose manu's rule(manusmriti if u care to know) to those white fa**ots!manu was right about women.if women empowerment comes(already came!) we will lose something called "family" in India.Women who are educated think more independent and they benefits but making the idea of family being eliminated like in west.
Best think for us Indians is to spread OUR culture to west,rather than embarassing every thing west esp the feminism and gender equality.women should be allowed to work,but without making kids and the family suffering for women empowerement.

@santhosha:U have to.this is the age where u shud understand freedom too have limits.do u want to be a henpecked husband later in ur life?then learn the realities.in my community,women are increasingly seeking divorce for freedom!that's right.as u also may be belonging to some conservative south indian caste,u shud learn what women freedom means!women freedom and gender equality means women will overpower men as they are more efficient in work.even in IT!.do u want to lost the title of a husband and a father in later life by marrying a westernized women?think about it.not to u!all of u! :)
Women may be efficient,but that means men being dragged to do the service of women.do u like to be a peon(sipahi) of a lady boss?dont u feel ashame after all?
Dont think i am Orthodox.but the reality shows what it turns out to be! :-|
