The Miss Penitentiary contest is held annually in one of the largest women’s prisons in the United States and Brazilian prisons.

There, a competition was organized by the Brazilian Ministry of Social Development and Human Rights to reintegrate convicted women into society.

Miss Penitentiary is such a popular beauty pageant that sometimes it’s even featured on the news. And the contest collects very high ratings of views. By the way, in this original beauty contest, not only the beauty of the participant is evaluated, but also their intelligence, as well as their behaviour during the period of serving time.
