This Woman Raised Awareness For An Extremely Serious Issue – By Stripping In Public

This girl took to Piccadilly Circus with a whiteboard and removed her clothes to draw attention to her cause, and it worked.

The English woman, named Jae West, openly disrobed in one of London's busiest spots as a public act of self-acceptance. Jae hoped this act would get people to question the true relationship that they have to themselves and their body-image.

Jae stood blindfolded, dressed only in her underwear, with a whiteboard that read: "I'm standing for anyone who has struggled with an eating disorder or self-esteem issue like me... to support self-acceptance draw a heart on my body."

After her experience, she wrote:

One of the most moving and inspiring moments for me was listening to a father explain to his children what I was doing. He was acknowledging the fact that everyone should love themselves exactly as they are and appreciate the bodies that they are given.

It warmed my heart to know that his children and others would grow up understanding the impact of this global issue and have a feeling of contribution after drawing a love heart on my body. If everyone could know and appreciate how beautiful they are from childhood I think this world would be a very different place.
