It’s time to respect Aly Raisman‘s body.
And what better way to pay your respects than by marveling at her nakedness in the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue?
Weeks after the Olympian became one 100-plus women who publicly testified against gymnastics coach Larry Nassar in his sexual abuse trial, she liberated herself again by stripping down for the racy — yet empowering — photoshoot.
Actually, there were several empowering messages on display!
In the photos, the word “survivor” appears on the 23-year-old’s chest while the phrases “fierce,” “live 4 you,” and “every voice matters” are painted across her arms.
The athlete is also decked out in the phrases “abuse is never OK” on her torso and “trust yourself” on her leg. But the big punchline comes in the words “women do not have to be modest to be respected” written run all the way down her side.
Ch-ch-check out the skin-baring, middle-finger flipping photos (below)!
IN HER OWN WORDS: @alyraisman is a SURVIVOR and proud of it. #SISwim 2018A post shared by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit (@si_swimsuit) on Feb 13, 2018 at 5:55am PST
