petition: Ban Child Beauty Pageants in the USA

Recently, the Senate in France accepted a bill that would ban child beauty pageants. In France, any person under the age of 16 is considered a child. Under the bill’s stipulations, child beauty pageant organizers or “anyone who encourages or tolerates children’s access to these competitions” may face jail time of up to two years and a fine of over twenty-five thousand euros. This is an important step in child-rights movements worldwide.

The French Senate believes that children, particularly girls, are being sexualised too early. Its response has been to vote for a ban child beauty pageants by 197-146. The suggested amendment to laws on women’s rights will now be sent to the national assembly so the ban has not yet fully passed. But if it does pass then anyone who enters a child, anyone under 16, to such a pageant would face fines of up to €30,000 and two years in prison.
