Sign to Support Healthy Female Role Models!

Pro Surfer Bo Stanley is sponsored by Billabong. Bo is 5'9" and a healthy fit size 8. Bo has an amazing surfing record and competes at a high level of surfing but due to the fact that Bo does not fit the Billabong bikini and clothing sample size 3, Bo does not receive the same amount of opportunity or support from Billabong. When it comes to modeling on their website or catalog Bo has been told that they think she is beautiful but unless she fits a size 3 she wont be featured. Bo receives less sponsorship dollars than her petite counterparts not based on skill or performance but on her hip measurement alone. We went to the Billabong's website and every female pro surfer besides Bo has a full photo gallery. This is extremely important because young girls need to see a variety of healthy bodies and healthy role models and Bo deserves to have equality from her sponsor, not only by having photos like all the other surfers but by being valued for her ability and skill. If you believe that women everywhere especially female athletes should be judged on their ability over their bikini size please sign this petition and share with other women who have also faced this discrimination.
