From the NY Post:
Thank you … um … Miss Utah?
A finalist in the Miss USA competition is drawing unique attention for her response to a question about women’s wages.
Marissa Powell, a 21-year-old Salt Lake City native, strutted across the stage in a sequin-lined dress Sunday, drawing a question from panelist NeNe Leakes.
“A recent report shows that in 40 percent of American families with children, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than men. What does it say about society?”
Powell nodded along, pondering her response.
She considered the right words. She paused.
Then she opened her mouth.
