Description

The research question that drives this study is: If child beauty pageants may have dramatic and negative effects on some young girls, why do pageant mothers insist on having their daughters compete? In this poster, I explore both the pros and cons of life in the world of childhood pageant competitions using the television show, Toddlers and Tiaras as a backdrop for the discussion.
