Abstract

Denigrated as "low-brow" culture and antifeminist in the past, beauty pageants have been largely ignored within sociology and Asian American Studies. White feminist critiques of beauty and specifically of beauty pageants (Wolf 1991; Bordo 1993) rightly analyze the detrimental effects pageants can have on women.
