All the Beautiful People
Sunday, Nia Sanchez, a 24-year-old beauty from Nevada, was crowned the new Miss USA during the 63rd telecast of the Annual Beauty Pageant. The newest title holder is a 4th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and during the contest, expressed her concern for sexual assault on college campuses. First runner-up for the pageant was Audra Mari, 20, from North Dakota. The competition featured women from all 50 states, and the District of Columbia, who were then judged based on three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview. Sanchez will go on to compete at the International Miss Universe competition later this year. After the tragic shootings last month in Santa Barbara, California, men are starting to step forward to show their support for women’s rights, featuring the hashtag, #AllMenCan. Before the #AllMenCan hashtag took over, the #YesAllWomen campaign started the trend, allowing a safe space for females on Twitter and other social media to talk about their personal experiences with rape, harassment and misogyny. The #AllMenCan hashtag took off on Twitter after PolicyMic editor Elizabeth Plank asked men to show what it meant to be both male and feminist. Men then posted their own photos and messages accompanied by the hashtag, showing their role in the fight for women’s rights. Check out the empowering messages on Twitter by searching the hashtag, #AllMenCan.
