    • Venezuela has won more global beauty competitions than any other nation in the world. Yet behind the glamor of pageantry lies a more sobering portrait of what it means to be a woman in this country. This is Venezuela's multi-billion dollar beauty industry revealed -- an exposé of how nationalism, personal ambition, and mass media have transformed the lives of ordinary women.
