Beauty 20 Years in the Making
In 1993, when the Miss World Pageant was at a viewing peak, China decided that they did not want to objectify their woman the same way that the rest of the world did. The woman of Peking University rejected the pageant thus China strayed away from the event.
But it wasn’t just the Miss World Pageant, China stopped supporting pageants all together.
It wasn’t until 2002 that they entered Zhuo Ling into the Miss Universe show, and not until this year that they allowed the show to become a cultural point.
It’s great that China can now show their beautiful women to the world.
