Women Now Run The Miss America Pageant

Wochit - May 17, 2018

According to the Huffington Post, "For the first time in this Miss America pageant's history, its leadership teams will be headed by women, all of whom are former pageat winners." This change comes after an email scandal that occurred last December that resulted in the resignation of two male leaders of the pageant.

Regina Hopper, Miss America Organization's president and chief executive officer, stated, "By putting female leadership in place, we hope to send a strong signal.

We want young women to see Miss America as a place whee they can come and benefit and be empowered.".
