Miss Universe Map Available from Ball State University Libraries
Beautiful Map: Miss Universe Map Available from Ball State University Libraries
Miss Angola was crowned the winner of the Miss Universe pageant in Brazil last night. The map shown above (click to enlarge) is from the State of Women in the World Atlas available in the GIS Research and Map Collection and the Atlas Collection in Bracken Library. The purple shading identifies countries who participate in the pageant, and the crowns represent past winners. The map offers a cultural lesson of why certain regions and countries of the world do not participate in the pageant. A related inset map displays countries where Avon beauty products are sold.
For more information about this atlas, please contact the GRMC Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:00 P.M.
