Abstract

This brief essay strings together case law, literary material and pop culture all on the subject of women baring their breasts. By changing the angle on each incidence of breast baring, it demonstrates how the act of baring is amenable to multiple readings, all of which can be returned to enrich a relevant legal analysis.
