Anti-Anorexia Campaign Driven by French Actress Images Who Died From the Disease at 28

April 19, 2013

Isabelle Caro admitted that she was very sick with anorexia, and she wanted other people to know how devastating the disease really is.  She posed nude for a photograph before she died to show other people how dangerous anorexia is.

Ms. Caro died when she was 28, abut she wanted the world to know about her disease:

Under the headline ‘No Anorexia,’ images across newspapers and billboards showed Caro naked, vertebrae and facial bones protruding.

There is a new ad campaign speaking out against anorexia, profiled by Huffington Post

The tagline: “You are not a sketch. Say no to anorexia” is meant to be meaningful, but it doesn’t speak to me that way, because it’s pointless to blame the models for the standards set by the industry. Why is this somehow a woman’s fault, again?  Why isn’t there any kind of action taken, sanction, for fashion designers using anorexic models in their shows, in their advertising? With these ads, the woman is still being attacked for what she is or isn’t as opposed to the industry for asking her to be that way in order to get work.  I still think it’s sick, but it’s not the woman’s fault here.
