The mother of five posted to Facebook last week about being fat-shamed and ridiculed at a nearby beach. The post went viral, and ushered in a huge wave of support from moms and other individuals across the world. This past Wednesday, that support could be seen in person at a rally held in Edmonton, Alberta.
Dozens of bikini-clad women gathered, brandishing signs that displayed supportive messages about body image and self-esteem. Jex-Blake was on hand too, wearing the same infamous bikini that was in the photo liked by millions around the world.

Kudos to these ladies for being proud of their bodies and not being afraid to show it.
