Question for class: What are some advantages and disadvantages to take part in it? Advantages Bring the beauty to the media and the world. Be ambassadors for peace or cultural exchange Internationally. Provide personal development and career opportunity for young women. Mu-Lien Ho
If over a billion watch the contest, clearly it is not outdated. The argument that it exploits women is absurd. The contestants willingly take part, and hope it will provide lucrative career in fashion or modeling. Don’t need feminist permission to participate. (David Gordon, UK) It’s simply human nature to look at beautiful people. In fact, when it comes to the level of Miss World or Miss Universe, pageants can promote cultural exchange. Many people can hear small countries represented in these contests. Besides, how many people have an opportunity to travel and be representative of his/her own country like the participants of Miss World do? (Carter Kwong, Canada) Ideas & Issues P. 10
Disadvantages Ideas & Issues P. 10 • To live up to a ridiculous idea that these pageants promote and celebrate? How about normal-sized people? (Kristen Nicolaisen, USA) • It is in the eyes of the beholder and the contest is meaningless. (Yoel Sano, UK) • Beauty contests can serve no real purpose in the modern world because women have started to drift away from their stereotypical portrayal as sex objects. (RKR, India)
What have come out of those beauty after beauty pageant? • Be married to a wealthy family? • Be a successful entrepreneur. • Be senator or governor. • If your child wants to take part in it, would you consent? Mu-Lien Ho
