Miss Universe: Feminism Is Dead, According To Miss VenezuelaTracie Egan Morrissey8/24/09 5:00pmFiled to: Beauty mythsMiss universe 2009 recapmiss universe 2009Heidi Montagkelly rowlandClipsTop722EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkOn last night's Miss Universe live broadcast, Miss Venezuela was asked what women can do to overcome sexism in the workplace. She answered that women need to realize that "there are no longer any barriers against us." And she won!AdvertisementIt's not like I'm looking toward the Miss Universe pageant for any kind of feminist rally cry, especially when the swimwear competition was introduced like this: "We're about to see all of the contestants in teeny tiny bikinis so they can show off their physical fitness for you and our judges." But, you know, come on. Overall, the broadcast was stale but not a train wreck enough to push it past boring…much like Heidi Montag's dancing.
