Abstract

Beauty pageants have always been the American tradition, and until relatively recently, were segregated by race. This project seeks to first previous research on empowering women of color into participating in beauty pageants throughout the 20th century. Next, it seeks to identify how women of color perceive beauty standards in pageantry today. Surveys will be distributed to women of color who have participated in beauty pageants that measure: self-esteem and body image expectations (Thompson & Hammond, 2003). The results will help broaden the knowledge by showing an under-discussed aspect of the pageantry world.
