Beauty Pageants - Empowering or Demeaning?
Carey Ng, ex-National Director of Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation | Tan Heang-Lee, WAO Communications Officer | Dr Chua Sook Ning, Consultant Psychologist
The argument for and against beauty pageants has been a long-standing one. Is it really a waste of time or does it open up a door of opportunities for contestants? Does it empower or demean women? What message does it send to little girls? We ask an ex-beauty queen, a women's rights organisation and a psychologist to weigh in on the issue.
