Huge changes coming to Miss America
Despite the progressive nature of the times, this still comes as pleasant surprise to me, considering Miss America’s long history of appearance related competitions. In an effort to be inclusive of women of all body types, there will no longer be a swim suit portion of the contest.
The chairwoman of the Miss America board of directors, said:
"We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance… she will highlight her achievements and goals in life and how she will use her talents, passion, and ambition to perform the job of Miss America."
It seems as though the' Miss America’s' of the future will be well-spoken, enlightened, and inspired individuals…rather than just really easy on eyes.
Will this make you more, or less likely to watch?
