Is Miss America right to get rid of the swimsuit competition?
Gretchen Carlson is a former Miss America and the chair of the Board of Trustees of The Miss America Organization. She recently announced the new direction of the competition:
"We are now open, inclusive and transparent and I want to inspire thousands of young people across this country to come and be a part of our program," she said. "We want you and we want to celebrate your accomplishments and your talents and then we want to hand you scholarships."
So Miss America pageant is getting rid of the swimsuit and evening gown portion... I thought the purpose of the #metoo movement was to empower all women in their choices not ridicule & belittle women who work hard to show off their bodies
