The U.S. Supreme Court is leav­ing in place the pub­lic nu­dity con­vic­tions of three women who re­moved their bathing suit tops on a New Hamp­shire beach as part of a global cam­paign ad­vo­cat­ing for the rights of women to go top­less.

The jus­tices de­clined Mon­day to re­view a state court de­ci­sion that found no vi­o­la­tion of the women’s con­sti­tu­tional rights.

Heidi Lil­ley, Kia Sin­clair and Ginger Pierro are part of the Free the Nip­ple cam­paign, a global ef­fort ad­vo­cat­ing for the rights of women to go top­less. They were ar­rested in 2016 af­ter re­mov­ing their tops at a beach in La­co­nia and re­fus­ing to put them on when beach­go­ers com­plained. Pierro was do­ing yoga, while the two oth­ers were sun­bathing.
