Make Plus-Size Princesses in Disney Movies!

I'm a Junior in high school named Jewel. I made this petition I know many younger plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positivie plus-size character in the media. I want there to be a character for those little girls to look up to. 

Studies show that a child's confidence correlates greatly with how much representation they have in the media. It's extremely difficult to find a positive representation of plus-size females in the media. If Disney could make a plus-size female protagonist who was as bright, amazing, and memorable as their others, it would do a world of good for those plus-size girls out there who are bombarded with images that make them feel ugly for not fitting the skinny standard.

Disney films are highly influential and wide-spread, and they impact the lives of many children, especially girls. It would be revolutionary for Disney to show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied by the media. It would make many young girls feel confident and worthy to see a strong character that looks like them. This move on Disney's part would have an amazing positive ripple effect in people all around the world.

      I am a 35 year old mother and have always been plus sized. I have also always struggled with my self-image. As of right now I have a toddler boy, but if I ever do have a girl, I want her to know that she is beautiful no matter what. For that matter, I want my son to know that women can be beautiful no matter their size. I can only do so much as a mom, so it would make a would of difference to see women of all shapes and sizes represented as beautiful in our media.
