Beauty in the struggle against violence
More than 50 beauties from around the world arriving in Belarus for Mrs. Universe-2015 international annual contest, to be held in Minsk
In Minsk, from August 24th-30th, married, successful, socially active, beautiful women will gather, including participants from Bulgaria, Brazil, Great Britain, Venezuela, India, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Russia and Ukraine.
Of the 10 women who have applied from Belarus, the international jury has yet to decide who will represent our country.
The competition aims to draw attention to the problem of violence against women worldwide, including activities to help victims of abuse and to promote better understanding of the causes of violence, while offering solutions to this problem.
Natalia Trofimova, who took part in the Mrs. Universe-2014 contest as the Belarusian participant, and who won the title of ‘Mrs. Glamorous’, notes, “By their actions, they show that violence has no place in a successful family, near a successful woman, in a successful country. The goal of the competition is to create modern role models for all women. Each of us should know what we are striving for: within our family, our career, in business, and in philanthropy.”
