Controversy around Miss France: “Certain criteria should be revised”, believes Cristina Cordula

the essential Invited on Europe 1, this Monday, November 8, Cristina Cordula reacted to the controversy concerning the Miss France election.

As a reminder, in mid-October, the Dare feminism association brought proceedings against the Miss France competition, before the industrial tribunal. She believes that the competition, “sexist”, violates labor rights. According to the association, the criteria for recruiting candidates, such as height or marital status, in the election are “discriminatory”. Three women, who claim to have had to give up taking the competition because they did not meet the criteria demanded by the organizers, also decided to “take the competition to court”.

Invited on Europe 1, this Monday, November 8, Cristina Cordula reacted to the controversy. “The women who enter the contest have the right to do whatever they want to do,” said the former model, before continuing: “What may not be very modern is that ‘there are a lot of criteria to respect. Over time, I think we need to have more flexibility (…) If a girl is 1m tall 60 and she wants to ‘be Miss, why not! “

“There are certain criteria which perhaps should be revised”, concluded Cristina Cordula. “After that, it is not because some girls want to be Miss France, that they should be ashamed or that it means that they do not value themselves”.
