For this reason, beauty contests exploit their participants both physically and psychologically. More and more children are involved in beauty contests, "Children are the fastest growing segment of the beauty pageant market, with annual child competitions attracting approximately 3 million children, mostly girls, aged six months to 16, competing for crowns and cash.
