QUEBEC CITY, CANADA – A Canadian Feminist Activist, who needs three adjectives to describe her, stopped a news conference by Quebec’s culture minister by lifting up her t-shirt, showing her bare breasts, and shouting in French “No to Bill 20” and “My uterus, my priority.”
Now that Topaloski has raised the subject, not to mention her t-shirt, Bill 20 is part of a legislative effort to reform Quebec’s healthcare system. Some critics, like Topaloski, say it will affect access to health services, including abortions.
In case you’re wondering, Topaloski got into the news conference by using a temporary press pass. After all, it’s hard sometimes to tell journalists from activists, until they take off their shirts.
The National Assembly may need to take a look at its security measures, because right now, they’re all looking like boobs.
