Rene Mesick, front, paints “M.Y.O. Body,” short for “Mind Your Own Body,” on the chest of an advocate who asked to remain anonymous during a Go Topless rally to raise awareness for gender equality in Union Square in San Francisco, Ca. on Sunday, August 28, 2016. The ERA, or Equal Rights Amendment, that is painted on Mesick’s back is a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that guarantees all rights listed in the Constitution apply equally to all people regardless of sex. The ERA was passed in Congress in 1972 and was sent to the states for ratification, but as of August 2016, 15 states have yet to ratify the amendment, leaving it three states short of ratification.
