Madrid’s Fashion Week, the Pasarela Cibeles, announced last week it was banning models with a Body Mass Index, or height to weight ratio, below 18. A 5-foot-9 (175-centimeter) model weighing 125 pounds (57 kilograms) would have a BMI of 18. I agree, and hopefully the same rules will be applied to those that do not have that choice all over the world.
And now a British Cabinet minister has taken up the controversy, asking the London Fashion Week also to ban super thin models.
This is such an unequal world. Why should the international press be so fascinated by this strange controversy when 95 % of the population of our planet are so thin becasue they just cannot get enough to eat !
Are we surprised that there are revolts all over the world against such unequal consumerism ?
