$25,000 of the gift will go to a worthy undergraduate theatre student in the form of scholarship. The rest will be used to create the Denzel Washington Chair in Theatre.

A Code Of Conduct For Models In The Works

Filed under: Legal MattersModels



Former model Sara Ziff is once again fighting for model's rights.

Following the September release of Picture Me, a film that exposed the ugly side of the modeling, Ziff is hard at work developing a code of conduct for models.

The Columbia University senior explains:

"The modeling industry is essentially unregulated. There are no provisions for rest and meal breaks [during work hours]. And a lot of modeling agencies have a huge amount of power over international girls because they sponsor their visas."

Sara is getting some help from Fordham University's Fashion Law Institute and hopes the new code will create a safer working environment for models.

Sounds like a great idea! Hopefully it works.
