Nantucket Residents Vote To Allow Women To Go Topless At Beaches

NANTUCKET (CBS) - Nantucket voters say women can go topless on beaches all across the island. The measure, titled "gender equality on beaches," was approved Tuesday night at the town meeting.

It changes the island's bylaws to allow any person to be topless on public and private beaches.

Currently the law says only men can go topless in public and women who do face a fine or possibly jail time.

The change still has to be approved by the Massachusetts Attorney General before it becomes official.
