A Colorado town overwhelmingly voted not to allow women to go topless, despite a push from women in the ‘Free the Nipple’ movement.

The Fort Collins city council voted unanimously Tuesday to ban women exposing their breasts below the top of the nipple, USA Today reports.

Mayor Wade Troxell said the feelings of the community against allowing topless women were “loud and clear,” as the council heard from dozens of residents who felt sanctioning public nudity would disrespect women or loosen the morals of the town.

Still, there were some dissenters, who arrived at the council wearing “Free the Nipple” shirts, arguing that the ban is sexist. Free the Nipple is an organization working to decriminalize female nudity.
