#FreeTheNipple is now making a lot of buzz thanks to Hollywood celebrities who are making an effort to topple down inequality against women in America. Thanks to a feature film called "Free The Nipple," more and more Americans are now aware of the discrimination towards women as the movement launch its campaign to decriminalize the "female areola" in all 50 states.

Now banned from Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Google Plus, the director's ability to finish the independent film is getting slimmer without the help of social media. Following a revolutionary girl in the topless protests, Lina Esco directs the film and also plays a journalist who follows the leads in her journey to raise awareness about censorship and nudity in America.

Due to the film's NC-17 rating, the director is attempting to use crowdfunding to get the film out there but because of the banning of their social media page the feature is still in the dark. New York is one of the few states that made it legal for women to go around topless, but it doesn't stop police from arresting women according to Esco in her interview with Huffington Post.

Here are the four celebrities who joins Lina Esco in #FreeTheNipple Campaign
