BARCELONA:  Authorities have allowed women to bathe topless in Barcelona’s city-run pools amid complaints that some swimming spots were discriminating against those wanting to bare more.

Campaign group Mugrons Lliures filed a complaint about inconsistencies in rules governing topless bathing at certain pools, prompting an investigation, according to a council statement.

In a report released at the end of June, several municipal pools were found to have rules that restricted women’s rights in certain areas of the facility, said the council.

As a result, the council’s office against discrimination sent a report to every municipal pool reminding them to guarantee equality and not prevent women from going topless.

A spokeswoman for Barcelona council told CNN that there is no written rule governing what people can wear at municipal pools, but discrimination based on gender is prohibited.
