In a way that is innovative and humane, Brazil appears to be taking the understanding of prison reformation to an inspirational level.

On Wednesday, the maximum prison at Rio de Janeiro was warmed up with the festivities of this year’s ‘TB Girl’ beauty contest, held for participation by female inmates of the prison, which was notorious for holding Brazil’s most dangerous.

Among the aims of the pageant is to ease up the rehabilitation process for the women, and to help bring a mood relief into the prison.

This is derivable from the factors for which the contestants were judged; beauty, of course, but more importantly for the pageant, their appeal and attitude, demonstrated to the prison’s other 404 inmates, as well as their relatives who had come to cheer them on at the event.

The demonstration of such appealing behaviour by women who have been arrested and imprisoned in such a notorious prison can certainly be applauded, and should in every way win some credit for the administration of the prison for the endeavour to maximise the prison experience as a contribution towards the reformation of the inmates, beyond the punishment of being held behind bars.

The elated contestants, while they were being groomed to take to the runway, confessed how excited they were to be having such an experience in their prison reformation. They expressed the joy of being able to perform ‘non-prison’ activities as a reminder of the goodness that a reformation and a reformed life could offer them.

“At this moment, I don’t feel like I am in jail, My soul is freed”, said one of the inmates, Michelle Rangel, who had won last year’s contest.

The winner of this year’s pageant, receiving the title known as ‘Miss Talavera Bruce’, 29-year-old Mayana Alves, had been imprisoned in 2015 for cargo theft.

The prison experience for many is viewed as a time of harsh treatment and sheer suffering for crimes committed, and sadly, this is the way that prison service conditions in various countries have made the situation to appear as.

However, with more creative, constructive exercises such as these, the prison experience cease from becoming a mere sesspool of anger and violence and be used a tool for inspiring a productive reflection on the good which choosing a crime-free life could bring to the inmates. Give them some good to be inspired about again, so that they can choose to live life and not opt to rebel against it when they have the chance.
