Model hands petition to 10 Downing Street


 Model Rosie Nelson, handed her petition into 10 Downing Street, calling for an improved health care for models after being refused by a model agency suggesting she was too fat.

 Rosie Nelson wants a tighter grip on health. Miss Nelson had attracted an 113,000 signature campaign and will stand her case in a parliamentary probe which begins later this year.

Hirushi a pupil at WGGS said, “I think it’s unfair not just to the models but to the people because these agencies are giving our generation the wrong image”.  

This campaign is rapidly moving towards countries such as Israel who have banned any models with a BMI less than 18.5, the ban is an effort to promote women of all sizes into the industry. Even though some disagree saying some women have a body that stays “stick thin”. Others thoroughly agree as a step towards having less numbers of anorexic cases.
