Woman goes to court to have Miss Curvy contest cancelled
A Ugandan woman has started a petition to have the Miss Curvy Uganda contest cancelled. The initiative unveiled in Kampala yesterday by the State minister for Tourism, Godfrey Kiwanda adds curvy and sexy Ugandan women to the list of tourism products to attract tourists.
It has however been met with backlash especially among women who say that the contest is demeaning to women as it objectifies their bodies as sex objects.
The unnamed woman demands that the contest is taken down and that Minister Kiwanda offers a public apology for coming up with such an initiative, but Kiwanda says the campaign is about appreciating what we are.
