Beauty contests do little to improve the status of women.

Favour (Yes)

  • Personally I think beauty pageants, in general (both adult/children), are pretty much stereotypical, conceded, and even vain at times. Plus they seem to go against a lot of minorities. You never see or hear of any overweight beauty pageants

  • it's up to the women who want to be famous its fine I guess doesn't hurt anyone

  • The real question is how it is affecting women's status and answer is very little. Because society is treating them as showpiece in this case

  • Now same kind of competitions for men are happening so no need to ask this question because it is only for money and business nothing to do with women's stature.

Against (No)

  • It all depends on type of pageant. I am fully supportive to scholarship pageants because not everyone has money to pay for college and competing in a scholarship pageant just shows that the girl is trying to make something of her. They can use that money to study in the colleges. This type of pageants are happening in western countries like USA

  • Pageant helps girls from all over society to come forward and make career in fashion industry


  • WE cannot link beauty contests to status of women in present scenario. Because it's up to a woman who want to be famous to join and enjoy such contests.

  • Such kinds of contests are happening all over world for men and women both. Purpose of beauty contests is business and entertainment.

Point: Beauty contest dont degrade women.This is a great platform for women to show their talent.If a women can achieve sucess in every field then why not in this field?Morever participating in a beauty contest is a decision of her family.Beauty contest will flourish their beauty and intellect.It examines not only their beauty but also it trail their confidence ,presence of mind,attitude.Better body language will help to improve social relation.So there is no harm for a woman to participate in a beauty contest.

Point: yes, beauty contest does little for woman.its only the woman who can consider herself beautyfull and fit for contest if she believes in herself,and for this contest have nothing to do with.Its also the advertisement of brand and many factors,and it can be a part time earning for woman rather than sitting at home.if she wants herself to win the contest or anything, she can do anything to achieve i.e., thats her willpower not the contest which inspire her.
