Lupita Jones Denounces Mexican Government's Proposal To Ban Pageants In Mexico





Lupita Jones broke the silence after announcing that beauty pageants could be banned in Mexico, since the Chamber of Deputies' Committee on Gender Equality considers that they are a type of symbolic violence against women and cannot be considered entertainment.

Through her Instagram account, the former Miss Universe posted a video to express her annoyance at this possible measure and without regard expressed (translated into English):

I am MarĂ­a Guadalupe Jones Garay, National Director of Mexicana Universal and Miss Universe 1991, the first Mexican woman to win for our country on that platform of great impact worldwide. 
Since then, my life has been dedicated to generating spaces and maintaining a platform that provides Mexican women with the necessary tools that allow them to confidently, confidently and courageously face any challenge that comes their way in life, not just a contest. of beauty.
I have witnessed and actively promoted a transformation in these platforms in our country. I have always said that platforms like Miss Universe have represented the woman of every era. Over the course of 68 years, it has evolved not once, not twice, many times more to adapt to what the same woman has been demanding throughout history.
Trying to typify these platforms as Symbolic Violence seems to me completely wrong and without any support. How can training, training, training and strengthening women be considered violence against women, both internally and externally? Teach her to cultivate her self-esteem, self-confidence and security. Provide you with professional opportunities so that you can stand out in what you are passionate about. Where is the violence?
I think deputy Frida Alejandra Esparza, that it is not possible to legislate from ignorance and personal prejudice.

Then Jones praised the good things that this type of competition has for Mexican women. “I have been a witness and an active promoter of a transformation in these platforms in our country. I have always said that platforms like Miss Universe have represented the woman of every era. Over the course of 68 years, it has evolved not once, not twice, many times more to adapt to what the same woman has been demanding throughout history. Trying to typify these platforms as Symbolic Violence seems to me completely wrong and without any support. How can training, training, training and strengthening women be considered violence against women, both internally and externally? Teach her to cultivate her self-esteem, self-confidence and security. Provide you with professional opportunities so that you can stand out in what you are passionate about. Where is the violence? " Finally, Lupita reproached and condemned this measure, ensuring that more than harming women, what these kinds of skills do is empower them. "I think that deputy Frida Alejandra Esparza, that it is not possible to legislate out of ignorance and personal prejudice. #TheCourtsEmpower ."
