Swedish women have launched a campaign called Just Breasts which fights for their right to go topless on beaches and in swimming pools.


These want to be free. But only if they are Swedish.

Scandinavian feminists were outraged when two women were asked to cover up their breasts by a lifeguard at a public pool near Stockholm.

One of the pair (sorry), 22-year-old Ragnhild Karlsson, said: ‘If women are forced to wear a top, shouldn’t men also have to?’

As a result, women in southern Sweden set up the Bara Bradiost network, which translates as ‘Just Breasts’.

A spokeswoman for the group said: ‘We want our breasts to be as normal and desexualised as men’s, so that we too can pull off our shirts at football matches.’

So far, the campaign’s strategy has been devastatingly effective. Members of Just Breasts have been jumping into swimming pools across the country wearing nothing more than bikini bottoms.

This tactical masterstroke has caused an upheaval in Swedish law – the country’s equal opportunities ombudsman will decide whether or not to take up the case later this month.
