92 women from across the globe competed in the annual competition for Miss Universe 2017. But as we all know that in the end only one woman can walk away from the 66th Miss Universe Competition as the winner.
And the crown for the Miss Universe 207 goes to Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
During the competition’s Q&A portion, the newly crowned Miss Universe was asked about the most important issue she thought was facing women in the workplace. She said:
“In some places, women get paid 75% of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours — and I do not believe that this is right,” she said. “I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world.”
According to her bio on the official Miss Universe website, Nel-Peters recently earned her degree in Business Management at North West University after making history at her high school for holding two leadership positions.
