TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The California city that birthed the free speech movement in the 1960s may be on the forefront of another revolution.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the Berkeley City Council is considering an ordinance to let women go topless in public.

The Washington Examiner reported Berkeley allowed public nudity until 1994, when the city code was changed after a UC Berkeley student known as the "Naked Guy" started showing up to class naked.

Berkeley allows men to go shirtless in public, but not women.

The council meets Tuesday, Sept. 12, and could vote on the measure then.
