I want world peace
t commented "A modern and civil choice. Only 2% of women on the tv speaks, the rest is mute and undressed". After that, the girls on the front row in a picture of the 186 finalists wore a white t-shirt which said "Neither undressed nor mute". I think this picture is ridiculous. What do they think they did? The way Italians or society in general see women won't change thank to them. Rita Levi Montalcini said "Women who changed the world have never needed to show anything but their intelligence" and I totally agree with her, but they are what the girls are on the stage for.
Although it's a beauty contest, every year the partecipants try to look smart and cultivated because "real beauty is on the inside". Aside from that, we know this is not one of those tv programmes which enriches our cultural baggage, it's only entertainment. As a member of the hypothetical audience, I don't need to hear them talk, they are there to be judged by their beauty. These girls want to become actresses, models, or hosts, and, since, as my Italian readers can see, some of them don't even know the difference between an accent and an apostrophe, I hope they won't become journalists.
What do you think women should do to change the way society sees them? If you are Italian, do you like watching Miss Italia? Will you watch it today?
