Woman strips down to promote body acceptance.

This woman's bravery is an inspiration!

Jae West, a campaigner with The Liberator's International, has struggled with body acceptance and eating disorders for most of her life.

So, the activist wanted to do something to raise awareness for how common it is for people to feel ashamed of their bodies.

She stripped down to her bra and underwear in London's Piccadilly Circus, blindfolded herself, and held out pens in both hands, encouraging people who agreed with her message of body acceptance to draw hearts on her skin.

At first people kept their distance, but eventually men, women, young girls, and boys approached her to cover her in "love hearts."

Jae wrote:

"As I stepped onto the streets of Piccadilly Circus with white board and markers in one hand and blindfold in the other, I couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of vulnerability at what I was about to do. Observing the members of the public on a casual Sunday lunchtime, oblivious to the fear-ridden chatter that was going on in my head. I'd seen a large number of families and individuals of different cultures in the area and was worried about offending them with exposing my body in the act of freedom that I was about to embark on.

"As the minutes passed it felt like hours. Usually during public experiments we have a couple of people planted in the crowd to act like onlookers and step in if nothing happens, however I knew that Elliot and Pete were the only ones out there and both of them were on camera's so I really was putting full trust in the public to step up to the plate. All of a sudden I felt one of the pens in my left hand slip out of my grasp. The feeling of the felt pen was on my skin was one of the most overwhelming feelings of relief, gratitude and love that I've ever felt. I just burst into tears. I don't know who that first person was but I am so thankful for their contribution. After that first love heart was drawn it felt like others were liberated to follow suit because soon all the pens were leaving my hands at a rapid pace!"

Awesome!

It took immense courage to stand out there and risk being ignored — and we're so glad that Jae's message struck a toll with so many people!

We can only hope that her message stayed with the people who drew hearts on her, and even the ones who didn't, for long after it was over, and we have a feeling it did!
