On Saturday afternoon, 28 women bared their upper bodies in an outdoor swimming pool in Bremen in protest. They wanted to draw attention to the unequal treatment of women and men in swimming pools.

Activists have criticized the fact that women, unlike men, must cover their breasts in public swimming pools, Bremen police said on Sunday. Women’s bodies and signs bore slogans such as “My Body Against Sexual Violence” or “Desexualize Breasts.”
