    ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- About half a dozen women went topless in downtown Asheville Sunday for the sixth annual Go Topless rally.

    Participants say it's intended to draw attention to laws and social stigmas about bare breasts in public.

    A small group of spectators was there to take photos and pose with participants.

    The Go Topless rally falls on the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day.

    While there has been interest in banning the rally from downtown Asheville, city officials say state law makes it legal for women to be topless in public.
