Children’s beauty contests maybe a thing of the past in France after MP’s voted to outlaw such competitions.
In a bold move, parents could be and sent to jail for up to two years or face a huge fine if they try to enter their children in “Mini-Miss” pageants.
The new law was put forward when a popular magazine featured images of a 10-year-old French girl in December 2010. The girl, Thylane Loubry Blondeau, and two others were photographed with heavy make-up and wearing tight dresses, high heels and expensive jewellery.
The law hasn’t been fully passed yet and will go to the French National Assembly for further debate.
What do you think about beauty pageants for young girls???
Should they be allowed or should they be banned in New Zealand as well.
