It objectifies women

I saw a documentary about sexism in the 1970s, and there was a clip of Jimmy Savile judging a beauty contest and touching 17 year old girls and everyone was surprised when they found out he was a sexual predator.

I find this quite difficult and interesting because I completely understand the arguments against the objectification of anyone. However, (and I know it doesn't say that they need to be restricted) I think people should be free to participate in beauty pageants and run beauty pageants if they want to.
