Miss Universe To Allow Married Women And Mothers Too In 2023
Now onwards to the 72nd Miss Universe contest in 2023, the married women and mothers will also be allowed to participate in the beauty contest worldwide.
It will now be open to single women from all around the world, as opposed to being a contest only for single women up until now.
Married women and moms will soon be able to compete in the Miss Universe contest as well.
The 72nd Miss Universe pageant will use the new format in 2023, and eligibility requirements such as marital status and parental status will no longer apply.
According to the current regulations, the Miss Universe title winner must be unmarried and must continue to be such until her reign is over and a new winner is announced.
Only female participants between the ages of 18 and 28 who were not married and who did not have any children were permitted prior to the regulation change. However, the age bracket will not change.
Mothers have never participated in the competition over the years, and it has always been required of pageant winners to avoid getting pregnant while they are ruling and carrying out their duties.
Miss Universe 2020 Andrea Meza, a Mexican model and previous winner of beauty pageants, applauded this action. She reportedly said, “I honestly enjoy that this is happening,” as reported by Insider.
It was about time pageants modernized and welcomed women with kids, just as society is changing and women are now holding leadership positions where formerly only males could.
There are many ladies who got married young or had children in their early 20s, and they always desired to participate in Miss Universe, but they couldn’t due to the rules, Meza continued.
Because of these modifications, such women can now begin or advance their professions in entertainment.
