Israel bans underweight models

 
We’re getting ready to throw a party. Why, you ask? ‘Cause the Israeli government just passed a law banning the use of super skinny and underweight models in runway shows and advertisements. For many years the fashion industry has thought the skinnier the better when it comes to their models, but that’s not how healthy girls really look. By skewing the notion of the perfect woman in an extremely unhealthy way, they’ve been sending young women a seriously bad message. But all that’s about to change, we hope.

 

With this new law in place, no model can be hired in Israel without a form signed by a doctor stating that they are of a healthy weight and BMI. Also, any advertiser who digitally fixes a photo in order to make a model appear skinnier must clearly state so.

 

We salute you Israel! Their step in the right direction for making young women feel better about themselves and sending a positive body image should be followed throughout the world.

 

What do you think about this new law? Should the U.S. adopt it, too?
