Tess Holliday “won’t compromise” when it comes to body positivity and
The former Walmart employee-turned-supermodel was the first size-22 model to be signed by a major agency.
Most recently, the model joined nine women in a protest for body diversity:
In the middle of a busy Canadian train station, a group of fearless ladies stripped down to just their bras and jeans.
The women held up signs that challenged others to start a conversation about body acceptance.
They encouraged passersby to snap photos of the protest and share them on social media on to further spark a discussion.
Following the #IWontCompromise protest, Holliday took to Instagram to share her excitement over the new wave of body positivity.
"Today something amazing happened and I got to share it with these amazing women. Yes for body diversity. Yes to walking through Union Station in just your bra and jeans. Yes to us embracing our bodies at all stages."
The model started the #EffYourBeautyStandards hashtag over two years ago in response to society's unrealistic body expectations.
As Penningtons' #IWontCompromise protest proves, Holliday's simple campaign has now catapulted into a global movement.
