A recent beauty pageant in Brazil hit the headlines for different reasons. Five contestants at the Miss Bumbum shocked the audience when they walked the ramp clad only in beef.
The five beauties draped themselves in 50 kilograms of meat to protest the way society looked at them. They wanted to tell the world that they were not just pieces of meat.
The protest assumed significance since it was staged amid a beauty pageant that aims to select the best buttock in the country. Sexual exploitation of women has been reported from showbiz including movies and beauty pageants.
The five beautiful protesters said that they chose the method to highlight the way women were treated as flesh in movies and modeling industries. They said that they were in solidarity with all victims of sexual violence.
The protest comes at a time when women around the world dare to speak up about their sexual exploitation. Not a day passes without a celebrity coming out to share her ordeal at the hands of the rich and famous, including Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
