French Women Bid Topless Sunbathing 'adieu'

6 ratings | 15333 views
France's summer is fast becoming a memory, and so is one of its iconic beach sights: the topless woman. According to an Elle magazine poll this summer, as few as 2 percent of French women under 35 now say they want to bare their breasts. It's a far cry from the once-ubiquitous scenes of semi-nudity on the French Riviera, epitomized by 1960s blond bombshell Brigitte Bardot. In the 1960s, it took a country like France to make feminism sexy — and women did it by going topless on the beach. Men don't have to wear bikini tops, so why should we? the feminists cried. The frisson of fun only increased when toplessness was denounced by the Vatican and condemned by the Spanish church. But times change, and so do bathing suits. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/3d281c11a96b4ad082fe88aa0db04305/Article_2014-09-09-EU-France-Topless%20Adieu/id-3a35a371d7a04effbd71553c239baa01 http://www.wochit.com
