Lina Esco, What's Underneath
Lina Esco's Fight For Equality Starts With Freeing The Nipple

“‘Why isn't there a female voice in the Bible? I don't hear a woman actually talking, saying a passage in the Bible.’ couldn't answer that.” In her episode of The What’s Underneath Project, actress and founder of ‘Free The Nipple,’ Lina Esco, shares the journey from her religiously oppressive youth, running away from home and suffering drug addiction and homelessness, to hitting rock bottom and attempting suicide after a breakup, to forging the path to her own liberation, by liberating all women. “If a man is topless, a woman can be topless. I want something in the constitution - an amendment that says that men and women are equal. It’s about changing the world. When I'm around that energy, I feel beautiful.”

Filmed in 2016 and previously hosted exclusively on Fullscreen’s subscription platform, this fall we are thrilled to re-release eight episodes of The What’s Underneath Project on our YouTube channel, free and accessible to all.
