Morten Traavik, the Norwegian theater director who created a beauty pageant for female landmine victims called "Miss Landmine," is coming under criticism for exploiting the women and creating a "freak show". Traavik responds that he is helping the victims and is "fed up" with pictures of Africans and Cambodians in rags, but to be honest, his claims might be more convincing if he did more than "raise awareness" and give the winners gold prosthetic limbs.
