Boisean’s body video goes viral

One Idaho mother-of-three went much further than just sharing kind words to promote body acceptance: She put her own body on full display by stripping down in a public market and inviting strangers to draw on her. Amy Pence-Brown, from Boise, is an artist and writer who described herself to USA Today as a 'nearly-40-year-old fat feminist mother'. Her most recent artistic performance, however, was a bit more of a social experiment, in which she challenged others to participate in spreading her message of self-love. Wearing just a bikini and a blindfold while standing in a busy public market, Amy held out markers and asked people to draw hearts on her exposed skin - and was truly touched by the positive response, telling Daily Mail Online: 'I've made peace with my body long ago, and I hope I'm helping more people do the same'/Daily Mail.
