Westbrook Woman 'Enraged' By Male Oglers at Topless March

[Ty] MacDowell said she was surprised by the turnout of those interested less in
challenging societal convention than in seeing partially undressed women. "I'm
amazed," she said, and "enraged (at) the fact that there's a wall of men
watching." MacDowell said she understood that for women, going topless in public
"is not socially acceptable yet, and obviously there's going to be a reaction to
something that breaks the norm." But, she said, the picture-taking was
particularly upsetting.
