Veronika Didusenko is a Ukrainian model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Ukraine 2018. She was later stripped of her title and banned from competing in the Miss World pageant as she had been married at one point and had a five year old son.

Veronika Didusenko, 24, announced on Instagram that she’s “launched a legal challenge” against the competition with the goal of fighting for “justice” and hopefully amending Miss World’s entry restrictions.

“The reason I was not allowed to compete in Miss World after winning the title #MissUkraine is because I had been married and have a child,” she wrote. “Denying me on the chance of competing on those bases breaches those protections against discrimination.”

Didusenko argued in her Instagram post that her September 2018 removal — and the pageant’s entry policy — violates the U.K.’s Equality Act (2010), as it is discriminatory “on various grounds, namely marital status, and pregnancy and maternity.”
