Manila, Philippines – The top ten list of countries with the most beautiful women is out, and the Philippines is not one of them. This, despite the fact that the Philippines has won the crown in all of the major international beauty pageants.
Other than the Philippines, only Venezuela and Brazil have similarly won all the major beauty pageants. Both Western countries are in the top ten list, with Brazil being rated number one.
The list was put out by UCityGuides, an international travel guide to the best destinations in the world.
“This is pure and simple discrimination,” said Joyce Ann Burton- Titular, a former Miss Philippines title holder and publisher of an internet site called Adventures of a Beauty Queen. “How can they possibly snub the Philippines when it practically won all the major beauty titles last year alone, including Miss World, Miss International and Miss Supranational,” Miss Burton-Titular said.
In reaction to this snub, a national coalition of women’s organizations in the Philippines is planning a Million March next week in Manila to publicly chastise UCityGuides and demand an apology.
