Women are finding this system to be an opportunity to work with their husbands and family to become positive role models. Mrs. International® was developed to have higher standards than other pageant systems. Each contestant has the opportunity to select a platform of her choice that she spends the year promoting. Husbands are a direct part of the show, escorting their wives in the Evening Gown competition, and the husband crowns his wife titleholder.
