Description
Brian Hayes talks to Julia Morley about the politics of the Miss World contest. From the Women’s Lib movement of the early 1970s, whose protest against the contest Morley resented but considered a healthy exercise (she expresses her admiration for the work of domestic abuse worker Erin Pizzey), campaigning by a growing cross-section of groups has grown more angry and violent, necessitating increased security.
