Call in to speak with the host
Models of Diversity advocates for more diversity in models, and demands that the fashion and marketing industries recognise the beauty in women of all races, ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities. Their mission is to change the face of fashion and modelling. They sponsor modelling workshops for people with disabilities, campaign against the tragic effects of the size zero culture, and fight inequality in the representation of real men and women. MOD looks at catwalk shows, the advertising culture, and model "glossies," and rarely do they see a true representation of real people. Join us to discuss the issues on March 29th at 11:00 AM Pacific Standard Time.
Angel Sinclair, the founder of Models of Diversity and Sinclair Model Management, is a former model herself; she started the campaign after appearing on Gok's Miss Naked Beauty in 2008. Angel was struck by the great variety of beautiful women participating in the event and how that contrasted with the narrow range we see in the fashion industry. That's when she decided, with Sally Williams, her co-founder, to promote the use of models that reflects diversity in society, in terms of race, shape, age, and ability. Join us for the Body Politic Interview with MOD's special envoy, Bonnie Lock, on March 29th who will discuss MODs Advocacy initiatives for all types of models internationally.
It's good to talk.
