French National Assembly Takes Aim at Websites That Promote Thinness
That anti-anorexia French bill passed by the National Assembly earlier this week also targets websites and print publications, according to this article in the Independent. "Although the law would also apply to magazines, it is mostly aimed at internet sites and blogs which have sprung up in France in the past two years. These sites, which also exist in the UK, worship extremely thin female celebrities, including Nicole Richie and Victoria Beckham."
