13 World Cup nip-slips: Players free the nipples

Freeing the female nipple is shaping up to be this generation's version of burning bras.

"Free the Nipple" has been a movement on the internet for almost a year, thanks to Miley Cyrus, who posted a picture of her own breasts and tagged it with #freethenipples. Now, it's blossomed in to a full-fledged movie.

The film is directed by Lina Esco and was conceived while Esco was working with Cyrus on 2012's LOL, according to Entertainment Weekly. It's set to release next month, with the goal of ripping a hole through unequal nudity censorship laws. The trailer was released this week and we have to say: The flick looks pretty awesome.

"Why is my nipple more obscene than a murder?" the main character asks in the trailer (which you can watch here). It's an excellent question and other high-profile people have been exploring, as of late, why it's OK for men to go topless when women can't. Chelsea Handler waged a war on Instagram this month for its uneven censorship rules pertaining to male/female nudity and posted a photo on Nov. 6 using #freethenipple on Twitter.

According to Free the Nipple's official website, the movie is inspired by true events involving two young women living in New York City, who build an army and take to the streets to protest inequality in the hope of changing archaic laws. "The film explains the contradictions in our media-dominated society, where acts of violence and killing are glorified, while images of a woman's body are censored by the FCC and the MPAA," the site reads. "What is more obscene: Violence or a Nipple?"

The trailer itself is full of caped women, taking back the streets and empowering themselves. But, it doesn't look like it's all girl power and victories, either. We can't wait to catch the movie and see how these women sought to change the world.
