Keep abreast

Street campaigning was taken to a new level of populism when a woman exposing her left breast conducted a survey in Whitehall. Performance artist Sarah Slater adopted the character Monique Toxique as part of a stunt to highlight the link between toxic chemicals and breast cancer. Bemused passers-by at first were unsure how to react to Monique's exposed breast. Police kept a discreet distance and debated whether an exposed nipple constituted a breach of the peace. While pleased with the breast's impact, the Women's Environmental does not see topless campaigning as part of its long-term strategy. "It was Sarah's idea to expose her breast," said spokeswoman Liz Sutton. "We wouldn't dream of asking anyone to do it."
