To feminists and other forward thinking women out there, is the Miss America contest exploitative of

young women , viewing them as objects or is the contest a way that young women can gain exposure, especially in the job and entertainment arenas, even giving them a marked advantage, edge, and head start in their careers, particularly acting careers? Young women who participate in beauty contests such as Miss America has a head start regarding careers, especially highly visible careers that young women who do not participate in such contests are oftentimes placed at a disadvantage, having to struggle to get their foot in the door, let alone reach the pinnacles of success.
