Women in the German capital can now enter public swimming pools without a top following a complaint by a young woman who was fired for doing so. The woman demanded that women should have the same rights as men to enter the swimming pool without clothes. Her complaint led to a new law which states that everyone, regardless of gender, can enter the swimming pool half-naked.
The woman filed a complaint with the Senate Ombudsman, claiming that the authorities were discriminating against her. The new law aims to ensure equal justice for everyone in Berlin, according to the ombudsperson’s office.
Public swimming pools in the city have announced that they will change their dress code with the intervention of the ombudsperson. Previously, there was a lifetime ban on topless women entering the swimming pool.
The new law has been welcomed by women’s rights groups in Berlin, who have praised the decision as a victory for gender equality. They hope that other cities and countries will follow Berlin’s lead and introduce similar laws.
The move comes amid a growing debate about women’s rights and gender equality in Germany, with many arguing that more needs to be done to address gender discrimination and inequality. The decision to allow women to go half-naked in public swimming pools is seen as a step towards achieving greater gender equality in the country.
