Take a "Pledge of Responsibility" in Clothing Sizing

This petition had 603 supporters

When my 9 year old girl goes to Old Navy and the only jeans available in-store are slim, skinny, or super skinny there's a problem. When J Crew launches a new size triple-zero as in extra extra extra small there's a problem. Recognizing young girls are especially vulnerable, recognizing that some 7 million American women have some sort of eating disorder, something needs to be done. I'm just a concerned dad and maybe this would only be symbolic. But this petition would ask Old Navy, J Crew, and the nation's other top retailers for girls and women's clothes to take a Pledge of Responsibility In Clothing Sizing. This pledge would ask these retailers to commit to carrying a cross section of sizes for girls and women of ALL sizes in their stores and not just online or in a catalog. This pledge would ask these retailers to feature a cross section of girls and women of all sizes in their advertisements and not just to focus on the smallest of sizes. This pledge would ask these retailers to never photoshop the girls and women in their advertisements. It's pretty simple: offer real sizes for real girls and women of all sizes. When my daughter stares in the dressing room mirror and looks at her reflection and says she feels F-A-T, just whispering the letters because she doesn't event want to speak the word, then there's a problem. Our daughters are too important to sit by and do nothing.
