Iskra Lawrence Takes Off Her Clothes to Give Powerful Speech on a Subway

British plus-size model; Iskra Lawrence has had it with body shamers, the 26 year old who was also a recent victim of death threats showed terrific courage by stripping down on a crowded subway in New York to talk to strangers about body diversity and body confidence. One could easily question why she decided to go all the way to New York to give her speech but considering the fact that it comes at a time when body-shaming was a primary focal point of the US election, as President-elect Donald Trump met criticism of his sexist and bullying remarks made to women. He was also embroiled in controversy after the revelation of a tape that captured him bragging about sexually assaulting women because he could get away with it.

Undressing down to her bra and undies, here is what the plus size model had to say:

I wanna make myself vulnerable today so you can see the journey I’ve come on with my own body. I’m going to reveal myself to you to prove that we are in control of how we feel about ourselves. No one else holds our self worth but us. I grew up hating what I saw in the mirror because society told me I was not good enough. I thought there was something wrong because I didn’t have a thigh gap, that I had cellulite, that I wasn’t skinny enough. That is the media, that is society making a small standard of beauty when we are so much more than that.
