As of 9:10 a.m. this morning at Tucson City Court, on the corner of Alameda Street and Sixth Avenue, no one had been arrested as Charlotte Gillis and about 10 friends/supporters stood in front of the building to protest what they feel is gender discrimination.

Gillis and eventually three other women took their shirts off to expose breast--with the areolas and nipples taped over to make them "legal." And a couple of guys got in on the action too, sans tape.

While Gillis went in for her pre-trial hearing with friends, Kristina Stevens and Nate Campbell kept up the protest, while two Tucson Police Department officers looked on.

On her return, Gillis reported that she asked for a continuance so she could raise additional funds to pay an attorney who wants to take her case. Her new pre-trial hearing is set for June 2.
