Make the law on being topless in public equal for men and women

Additional Information

Remove the discrimination in law that treats female breasts differently to male breasts despite both consisting of breast tissue, areolas and nipples.

Revise the laws on public nudity that effectively deem a woman's breasts to be inherently sexual. A man can swim topless despite his toplessness being sexual in certain contexts, male strippers for example - women do not have that right.

Revise gender discrimination laws so that requiring a woman to cover her breasts is treated as gender discrimination if the same is not required of a man e.g. at a public sauna.
