Women who protested Iraq war sue over strip searches

The federal civil-rights lawsuit alleges that police and corrections officers at the city jail in Olympia, Wash., ordered the women to take off dresses and shirts "in direct violation of jail policy" in a way that completely exposed and revealed their breasts." The suit alleges that the women could be seen by "male prisoners and jail and police personnel alike."
