Fight to 'Free the Nipple' continues, new proposal presented to House Wednesday

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - The New Hampshire House is set to vote on a bill that would make it crime for women to expose their breasts in public.

The proposal before the House Wednesday makes it a misdemeanor for women to show their breasts or nipples in public with "reckless disregard" for whether it would offend someone. It's partly a response to a "Free the Nipple" movement that led to two women being cited for going topless in Gilford last year.

The bill also caused an online spat among several state lawmakers after a male lawmaker said if women want to show their breasts in public they should be OK with men wanting to "grab" them.

The House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee is recommending that the full House reject the bill.
