Women are currently persecuted for baring their breasts in public in New York. On a global level, women who bare their chests often face more severe disciplinary measures.

This is a problem.
A New York artist who goes by the pseudonym Narcissister is taking over the city streets with a performance aimed to promote self-acceptance and unadulterated freedom for women and their breasts everywhere.
