Ban Size Zero Models

Following recent revelations of diet-based deaths in size zero models and the commendable actions taken by Milan and Madrid Fashion shows to clamp down on size zero and unhealthy models. The London Fashion Show has decided not to follow suit. I hereby add my name to this petition and declare that the designers, organisers, and funding organisations of the London Fashion Show should ban size zero and unhealthy models (those with a BMI under 18). I believe that they have a moral responsibility, to not only protect vulnerable young girls and women from aspiring to unhealthy lifestyles and body ideals, but also to the oppressed models who struggle to unhealthily achieve the size zero image.

Sponsor

The Petition was started by members of Glam Girls (Womens Group at the University of Glamorgan Union), as part of their Body Image Campaign. Which was launched during Eating Disorder Awareness Week (February 2007).
