  1. Objectifying women through beauty contests is a big debate. While one can make an argument both ways, I have a problem when it is judged by people who reduce the concept of beauty to artificially altered face and body (like Ms. Lukynova). What could Mongolian girls and women learn from it – you are beautiful if you look like Barbie, life is plastic and it’s fantastic?

    This maybe a low-vintage event of its kind but I am outraged at the silence around this and even more with the organizers!
