Transcript of Miss America Pop culture Debate:Toddlers & Tiaras

Need Beauty to succeed in life
-The women who win Miss America are mostly slim, tall, and beautiful- is this an accurate representation of what they actually look like on a day to day basis

Girls are taught to look up to these women- but does it set realistic expectations?
Starting Activity
What are the first 5 things that come to your mind when you hear "Beauty Pageants" or "Miss America?"
Write them down, and then discuss with a partner.
-Brenna exemplifies the idea that girls must be "beautiful" to compete in the pageants and achieve her goals.
- Beauty is the most important thing to her.
The Beauty Industry's Objectification of Women
Pageants have shaped and maintained the stereotype for the female gender
Because of these pageants and the media, girls think they have to be beautiful to achieve in life, and will even go to extreme measures to do so.
For example, many women get plastic surgery to get the "ideal" feminine body. Ukrainian model, Valeria Lukyanova even tried to make herself look like Barbie.

How far is too far?
Do you think it is important to strive for someone else's idea of beauty?
Do you think body image perception and modifications are due to Beauty Pageants?
Do you think beauty has the most influence on overall happiness?

Miss America Pop Culture Debate:
Toddlers, Tiaras and Beauty Pageants

What is perfection?
Who decides?
Would you say that beauty pageants are inclusive or exclusive?
How much diversity is represented throughout beauty pageants?
Exclusivity in Beauty Pageants and Miss America
There are very few people with disabilities represented in pageants.
When people with disabilities are in pageants, it becomes a huge deal because it is so out of the ordinary. This shows how exclusive and closed-minded our society is about individuals with disabilities.
Closing Activity

How do you see examples of this in your everyday life?
