Women in Islamic countries across the Middle East are forced to wear coverings, known as Burqas or Hijabs from heat-to-toe. In many nations, such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, such dress standards are strictly enforced by law. In front of a millions of viewers worldwide on 23rd August 2010 night, watching the Miss Universe pageant, Miss Australia seemingly took a stand against such oppressive policies.

From the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Aug. 23:
Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell: What role should the government play in regulating potentially offensive clothing? "One of the greatest things we have is the freedom of choice...I don't think the government should have any say in what we wear."
Her answer was met with loud cheers from the audience.
However, she did not make the top two contestants. The pageant was won by Miss Mexico. Campbell was in the Top 5, along with Miss Phillipines, Miss Jamaica, and Miss Ukraine.

Interestingly, Miss Ukraine was similarly asked a political question. She was queried about full body scans at airports to protect against potential terrorists. Neighboring Russia has been a target of Islamic terrorism in recent years. Her response:
This is a very important question of security. To avoid the type of catastrophes that we are well aware. So if that helps us to save the lives of people then I’m for it!
Out of a total of 83 contestants, only 6 came from predominantly Muslim countries: Egypt, Lebanon, Kosovo, Indonesia, Turkey, and Albania. Notably, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, and other large-population Muslim nations, did not participate.
