Talking diversity, beauty and media

Check out my interview with ABC Radio Australia/News Radio evening host Prue Bentley. We discuss my piece in ABC’s The Drum exploring the controversy around the crowning of the first desi Miss America Nina Davuluri.

Is more diversity a form of progress even if it is within an outdated pageant framework? What about questions Davuluri would be too dark to be a beauty queen in India? Within this framework does her win indicate some kind of social evolution albeit in a limited form?
