Margot Mifflin is an author, she has written for The New York Times, ARTnews, and The Washington Post, The New Yorker, known for her book The Blue Tattoo.
You might remember the glitzy days of nationally televised beauty pageants: parades of beautifully coiffed young women representing every corner of America. Was this a celebration of femininity or a slap in the face for feminism? City University of New York professor Margot Mifflin joins host Krys Boyd to take us backstage, where battles for social change butted up against traditional models of who should wear the crown. Her new book is “Looking for Miss America: A Pageant’s 100-Year Quest to Define Womanhood.”
