To combat the persistence of anorexia in France, the government plans to clamp down on the glamorisation of too-thin women.
Nonetheless, not everyone in the country is happy with the decision and as the French Parliament continue to debate legislation that would effectively set minimum weights for women and girls to work as models, we can’t but wonder about our own dear country.
Recently, I overhead a couple of models at a Lagos event talking about how they were going to “so starve” to get a job and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I thought discussions like that didn’t exist in Nigeria and maybe I was a just being naive but I think our perception of beauty (amongst many other things) is definitely changing and rapidly too. Do you agree or disagree?
