Biographical / Historical
Kathleen Reilly was born on April 29, 1946. Reilly is a women’s rights activist and part of the “Topfree
7”, the group of women arrested for “exposure of a person” in 1986.

Topfree 7
On June 21, 1986, seven women removed their tops and bared their breasts in public during a picnic at
Rochester, New York’s Cobb Hill Park. They did so as an act of civil disobedience in protest against the
state law that requires women to wear tops in public. The women felt the law was discriminatory since
men can go topless in public. The 50 year old penal law 245.01, or “exposure of a person” law stated that
women in New York State could breastfeed infants in public, but could only go topless in public in very
specific circumstances that were deemed entertainment. It was illegal for women to show below the top
of the areola. The law did not restrict men from doing this. The seven women – Nikki Craft, Kathleen
Reilly, Ramona Santorelli, Mary Lou Schloss, Deborah Seymour, Elsie Joe Tooley, and Lynn Zicari
were arrested at Cobbs Hill Park and charged with violating the law. They appealed. Six years later, on
July 7, 1992, the seven were acquitted when the state’s highest court reversed penal law 245.01. The
court declared in unconstitutional and ruled that women have the right to go topless anywhere in public
that men can.
C.L.A.W. was founded in 1990. Challenging Laws and Attitudes against Women was originally part
of the Coalition for Topfree Equality. C.L.A.W. was formed because they wanted to focus on Topfree
Equality as a feminist issue and to have women making the decisions on actions, legal defense, and
publicity.

Scope and Contents
This collection consists of the papers collected by Kathleen Reilly, a women’s rights activist and one
of the seven women dubbed by the media as the “Rochester Topfree Seven” in 1986. The materials
date between 1984 and 1991. The materials consist of news articles, newspapers, newsletters, notes,
photographs, brochures legal documents, publicity, membership information and reference for C.L.A.W.
(Challenging Laws and Attitudes against Women), and reference for the Topfree movement. The
materials document the fight for women to be able to remove their shirts in the same way that men
are legally allowed. It also documents the reasoning for why the women decided to protest the way
that they did. The collection documents the public opinion on the movement at that time and the legal
ramifications of the Topfree Seven’s actions.
The bulk of the materials are news articles and newspapers regarding the Topfree movement. The articles
consist of letters to the editor, coverage of the Topfree picnics, the trial of the “Rochester Topfree 7”, and
opinion pieces.
The materials also contain legal documents from the trial in 1986 and the appeal. The legal documents
consist of briefs, decisions, and motions. Any legal documentation that contains correspondence to or
from the Topfree 7’s attorneys as well as, any trial preparation have been removed from their original
location and placed in a restricted folder due to attorney-client privilege. These files will be restricted
until 75 years after the creation date.
