Stop Child Pageants in California

Petition published by Brittany Camacho on Nov 01, 2011
13 Signatures 
Target: Governor

Petition Background (Preamble):

We feel that beauty pageants exploit children and are in the interest of the mothers and not the children themselves.

We would like to see age restrictions (16+) placed on pageant contestants to ensure full consent. We oppose promoting physical beauty as a main value, and not allowing children to play with dolls, but instead, turning them into live Barbies.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on the Governor of California to enforce age restrictions (16+) to contestants entering Beauty Pageants.
