  • GoTopless encourages the women of Columbia to free their, um, minds.
Free your breasts, and your mind will follow. Such is the mantra of, an offshoot of a religious movement tied to UFOs that is bringing its fight for bare breasts to mid-Missouri later this month.

"When a woman takes her top off in public, there's a chemical reaction in her brain that is very powerful," explains Donna Newman, a Raelian priest and spokeswoman for "It's something men will never understand. We want it written into the Constitution that women should be allowed to go shirt-free in public. We were human beings before we're gendered."

Newman hopes dozens of women will join the cause August 26 at a rally in Columbia's Peace Park. She says GoTopless has already been in touch with Columbia's police department and received assurances that the group won't be breaking any laws. The city reportedly has no ordinance on women going topless.

"This is about human rights and freedom," says Newman, downplaying GoTopless' association with the Raelian Movement -- a religion that believes extraterrestrials created mankind. "It is not a recruitment drive [for the religion]."
