Honestly, I can imagine why someone with passing knowledge of pageantry would condemn it. But that’s the thing about some aspects of modern-day feminism — it completely condemns the past without considering the root of the problems we’ve had, which makes us far more likely to repeat our ignorant mistakes.
I’d like to know more about “the thing” you mention here. What “aspects” are you referring to? That’s a pretty severe indictment of “modern-day feminism” to propose, especially without citing any examples and offering no follow up.
