The law against thin models in France: the reference from medical personnel and a retouch


The law against thin models in France: the reference from medical personnel and a retouch
In France the law forbidding use for stylish displays and advertizing shootings of excessively thin models is adopted. About measures for fight against anorexia the BBC reports. Now at employment of the girl will be obliged to provide the medical certificate confirming their general physiological health, and still the standard body weight index (BWI) which pays off proceeding from the weight and human height. In initial edition of the legislative project it was offered to state an index of body weight of models in the statutory act, however after objections of the model agencies of the requirement have softened, having granted to medical employees the right to independently decide what is hazardous to health and that isn't present. In case of non-compliance with these requirements of the law employers are threatened by a penalty to 75 thousand euros or imprisonment for a period of up to 6 months. Before identical laws have been adopted in Israel, Italy and Spain. In the beginning such amendment contained in the document, but the local model agencies have expressed a protest. Since October, in case of use of a retouch marketing photos with the image of models have to contain also a mark about updatings of the initial image. From this date the law will order to put a mark "the image is retouched" if any amendments were introduced in a picture. The Minister of Health of France Marissol Touraine has reported that new norms are dictated by care about health of models, and still other inhabitants, in particular, of young women. "Unnatural and unrealistic standards of beauty develop in many of them feeling of self-abasement and a low self-assessment, and it, in turn, leads to chronic malnutrition" — has reported the Minister of Health of France Marissol Touraine.
