Miss Landmine: Cambodia

"It would damage the “dignity and rights of the disabled," claimed Cambodia's Ministery of Social Affairs some month's ago, as it released its decision to refuse permission for a proposed 'Miss Landmines' pageant to proceed.

And there things stood until the South Norway Museum of Arts agreed to parade photos of the 20 original Cambodian amputee contestants down the catwalk.

Of course a photo isn't anything like the real thing but at least some level of recognition is better than nothing?

But what do you think? Should the pageant have gone ahead?
