One of three Ontario sisters stopped by Kitchener police last week for riding their bikes topless says that she, her siblings and their mother exercise their right to go topless whenever they can.
That’s what got Tameera Mohamed and her sisters, Nadia and Alysha, a Juno-nominated musician, pulled over by police during their bike ride from Waterloo to Kitchener on a hot Friday evening. That’s also why they’re organizing a protest to raise awareness about women’s rights in Ontario.
It’s the latest incident of bare-chested females. In June, an eight-year-old girl who was playing at a Guelph wading pool without a bikini top was told by a lifeguard to cover up, citing city policy that prohibits girls over the age of four from going topless at public water parks. A change.org petition was soon launched in an effort to change the policy.
In the Kitchener incident, Mohamed tells Yahoo Canada News, “He told us to put our shirts back on and that it was illegal to have shirts off.”
