Westbrook Woman Organizes Topless March in Portland

It's called "Portland's First Ever Female-Bodied
and Allied Topless Adventure." Put more simply, an expected 30 or more women,
along with "allied" male sympathizers, plan to walk from Longfellow Square down
Congress Street to Tommy's Park at the top of the Old Port with nothing on from
the waist up.
It's simple, explained organizer Ty MacDowell, 20,
of Westbrook, in an interview Friday. On a personal level, MacDowell likes to
swim during the summer at East End Beach and has always yearned to do so
topless. Beyond that, she and her fellow adventurers want to expose what they
see as a glaring double standard.
