Ans.                                             “Beauty contests are degrading”

I agree with the statement that beauty contests are degrading. They degrade women to mere objects. The sponsors exploit women by requiring them to parade in swimsuits or even lingerie. They are judged mainly on their physical appearance rather than on any other qualities they may possess. When the women parade themselves on Stage, the judges will look at a number of things. But the most important criteria will probably be poise. To achieve proper poise a woman’s body should he well proportioned – having a neck proportionate to her height, lanky legs and so on. This process of evaluating poise can be compared to dog shows where golden retrievers of the wrong bodily proportions are kicked out of the competition. I feel judging women primarily on their looks degrade womanhood.

Muslim feels beauty contests violate some religious or cultural practices. Some consider Western style beauty contests as immoral, because the female participants are typically not dressed modestly; this really degrades women in the eyes of conservative society. Lastly, when the winner wears a crown and reigns for a year, she is actually being exploited  to do cheap promotions for the sponsors who make use of her to promote their products until they see it fit  to replace her with sonic other beauties. This is cold and mercenary. For all the reasons given, it is found that beauty contests are degrading to women. Every woman is beautiful in her own right. They do not have to take part in beauty contests to make others appreciate them and tell them that they are beautiful by other people’s standards.
