Topless Maine Students Stage Protest

University of Maine at Farmington student Andrea Simoneau, left, is videotaped during a topless protest Friday, April 30, 2010, in Farmington, Maine. The demonstration called attention to the double-standard that it's acceptable for men, but not women, to go bare chested. In Maine, it's perfectly legal for women to go topless in public.

Question: It's legal for women to go bare chested in Maine. Should it be legal for women to do the same in Idaho? Or Washington?
