18 Year old NCC SW (Senior Wing) Girl Sehr Bansal is ‘Second Runner-Up’ and ‘Miss Talented 2018’ in ‘Miss Supermodel International 2108’ powered by International Fashion Week in Goa,
Mangaluru: A beauty pageant or beauty contest is a competition that mainly focuses on the physical beauty of its contestants, although such contests also incorporate personality, intelligence, talent, and answers to judges’ questions as judged criteria. Beauty pageants remain one of the oldest and well-known symbols of sexism in society today. However, the fact remains that beauty pageants still celebrate and reward a narrow view of feminine beauty. Many women who participate in beauty pageants contribute more to society than many would have expected in the past. By their very nature, beauty pageants support the idea that, for women, any noteworthy success or accomplishment should ideally be presented in a pretty package – conventional feminine attractiveness being the package in question.
