    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    "What is Feminism?" I asked contestants and current title holders at the Miss New York World competition on Sunday March 1, 2015. According to them, feminism is, above all, "Solidarity, equality and choice." As for beauty pageants being anti-feminist? "Being in pageants is the most feminist thing I could do," Maria Lopez, a contestant explained. "In our society we're often told not to show off; to keep quiet as women and pageants are the opposite of that."
