FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado woman seeking to prevent citations for being topless in public is publicizing her cause by standing on a Fort Collins intersection wearing only a bikini and a placard covering her breasts.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan (https://goo.gl/Ut8CEP ) reports that 24-year-old Brittiany Hoagland has made occasional street demonstrations ahead of a planned protest in the city Aug. 23 to coincide with an international “go topless” day.

Hoagland tells the newspaper that it’s a matter of equality and that if it’s fine for men to be topless in public, the same standard should apply to women. The placard she wears to cover her breasts when she stands on a city intersection reads, “Illegal to Remove.”

Fort Collins police Deputy Chief Jerry Schiager says his department writes a few citations each year for public indecency, a misdemeanor.
