Fort Collins Keeps Ban On Topless Women

October 21, 2015

Fort Collins has decided not to join a national movement to remove indecency crimes for women going topless.

The city council voted unanimously Tuesday evening to reject removing a public indecency law that prohibits the display of female breasts.

The city did amend its indecency code to allow public breastfeeding. Many other cities, including Denver, New York and Boulder, have removed gender-specific language completely from indecency codes.

Supporters of the change said the indecency change wouldn't have led to an explosion of women going topless in public. But opponents called the change demeaning to women.
