Veronica Grossman says: "I work for a music website in NYC called BreakThru Radio. We recently published an episode for our show BTR Pulse. This episode features Moira Johnston and her feelings about going topless in NYC. After taking a look at your site I feel that your friends, fans, and followers will thoroughly enjoy this particular episode."
According to a 1992 law, women in New York have the right to go topless anywhere a man can, so long as they're not engaged in commerce. Yet many people still don't know this is legal twenty years after the ruling. This week, on BTR Pulse, Lauren Hawker caught up with Moira Johnston, a female rights activist from Philadelphia who has ditched her shirt to raise awareness about a woman's legal right to be topless in NYC.
