FREE THE NIPPLE

December 4th 2016 – A small but vibrant group of protester got together at Albert Park in Auckland to celebrate gender equality by freeing their nipples. Although not illegal in New Zealand, the female nipple is still not socially acceptable and the idea that woman can walk around with their breast exposed is far from casual. The movement is inspired on the international #freethenipple campaign, which on itself was inspired by the male nipple liberation movement of the 1930’s.

AUCKLAND 17/12/2016 – Approximately 40 people attended the Free the Nipple day at the beach held today at mission Bay. Everyone seemed to have a different reason to attend but the general consensus amongst the group was to demand gender equality.

Although not illegal in New Zealand, the female nipple is still not socially acceptable and the idea that woman can walk around with their breast exposed is far from casual. The movement is freely inspired on the international #freethenipple campaign, which on itself was inspired by the male nipple liberation movement of the 1930’s.

The presence of curious tourists did not faze the protesters or the movement and more people are expected to attend the next event to be held in Takapuna in early January 2017.

AUCKLAND 14/01/2017 - "Free the nipple" seems to be here to stay. The ongoing campaign to desexualize women's breast and demand gender equality keeps getting stronger and stronger in Aotearoa/ New Zealand. This time the protesters took it to north shore's favourite Takapuna beach to liberate their breasts and enjoy the sunshine. Approximately 60 nipples attended the event. Beach goers did not seem very fuzzed about it and according to the event's organiser this is a positive thing "We are trying to desexualize and normalize the female breast so women can have the choice to go topless if they choose to, the fact that we are not getting unwanted attention means most kiwis are pretty accepting of that idea too". The desexualization of the female nipple is a small but important step towards gender equality and if things stay on track it won't be long before it happens all around the country.
