Catalonia published a controversial campaign defending women’s rights to go topless, on their official Feminism and Equality Twitter account.

Accompanying Catalonia’s controversial video campaign defending women’s topless rights was a statement that read:

“The sexualisation of #girls begins when we are very young and accompanies us all our lives.”

“That we have to cover our breasts in some places is an example. It is also #discrimination.”

“On the world #topless day, let’s claim the liberation of our bodies.”


Despite Catalonia’s controversial topless campaign receiving support it also saw some backlash online, with one user responding:

“The sexualisation of girls begins at 0 years old thanks to the education law that you have approved with the PSOE. Aren’t you ashamed of yourselves?”

Another user responded: “You claim for the liberation of our things while defending religions that prohibit it. Bravo.”

To which one Twitter user responded: “Exactly. Bravo!”

Another user tweeted on Catalonia’s topless campaign:

“You, who normalise and legitimise the Islamic veil (undertaken to subdue, cover and vex the woman), now claim “to walk with your breasts in the air”?”

“You are of volatile and contradictory ideas…#SalvemCatalunya”

Catalonia’s topless campaign follows Spain’s government’s latest campaign featuring five women of very different shapes and sizes, coming under fire after a British model was included in the campaign without her permission.
