10-year-old Vogue model ignites debate

2011-08-16

Gender studies professor Jane Tolmie is available to talk about the controversy surrounding the appearance of a 10-year model in the Parisian edition of Vogue magazine.

"The fashion industry and Vogue have no genuine concern about skinniness or fetishization of youth or hypersexualization and exploitation of little kids. This is just one more disturbing money-maker for Vogue," says Dr Tolmie, who teaches courses on feminism and gender.
