The beauty mythPakistan Dawn
It was feminism that represented modernity. But far from fading away, Miss World found a new niche as virtually the only global event regularly staged in the developing world. The contest adopted the Eurovision song contest format where the previous year?s winner would host it. Officials promote the idea of ?the world family? and describe the contest as ?all the world on one stage?. This, they claim, is not a degrading beauty contest so much as a global competition uniting the world in its love of a beautiful woman. This ?United Colours of Benetton? approach certainly proved a rich vein to tap and not just for the organisers. As Daniel Miller and Don Slater show in their book on Trinidad, the contest was an opportunity for Trinidadians to present themselves to the world, a defining moment of cultural identity and modernity.

Poland: TVP prefers 2003 songs in Englishesctoday.com
Everybody can find something appropriate for himself. Don't generalize!. Otherwise I would have to tell that French music (I personally prefer most) must be disgusting looking at their ESC merits in the late 90ies or that Sweden's music is an one-way street – Abba, and the absolute END! I don't like Polish music because of its strange and dramatic style. Moreover, the language is not suitable for singing. Considering my PERSONAL music taste, that is my judge about Polish music. Jan, may I ask you for the country you're living? Switzerland?.

However, let’s be honest here. Ireland’s participation or not in this sexist outdated pageant was not to going to have earth shattering consequences. Unlike Eurovision, we don’t do Miss World well. It is a contest reserved for the likes of Venezuala and Chile and at national and regional level, it is nothing more than a money-making exercise for those who hold the franchise in each individual country. Our absence from it would merely free up another few hotel rooms and not send reverberations around the world of international beauty. In this scenario, Miss Duffy was a mere pawn in the grand game of gesture politics. If we wish to make known our opposition to all of the many injustices that are carried out throughout the world, there are many other methods of doing this, though perhaps none as easy, as putting pressure on a student.
