Dozens go topless, braless in Charleston to normalize female bodies

Topless protesters made their way down Summers Street in Charleston on Saturday evening to show that nipples and breasts are not sexual objects.

A week ago, Valenia Morrison was laying on her back, sunbathing as her boyfriend fished in the middle of a lake in Logan County.

After about an hour, an officer with the Department of Natural Resources pulled up to the couple, pulled out a slip book, and wrote Morrison a ticket for indecent exposure because she was topless.
