Make it illegal for modelling agencies to hire dangerously underweight models

Thanks for taking time to look at my petition. I've seen many of these sorts of petitions tried and sadly, failed. All my life I've seen images in magazines and on TV promoting models that are scarily underweight. People seemed outraged but over time it seems their voices have been lost. I want to let people know that you have a voice, however big or small. Your signature matters. Models over time have become skinnier and skinnier and although I fear for the health of the models I also fear for the lives of people who look up to models and want to emulate them. Young people like myself can be particularly impressionable and seeing these images can have a massively negative effect. Some models are at a weight that cannot be achieved through regular excersize and a healthy diet. This encourages people to take more drastic measures to achieve the 'perfect' body. Some modelling agencies require models to be a weight and height that would make them in the underweight section of their BMI. Thanks again for reading and please take the time to sign this.
