She marched in civil rights demonstrations, took part in sit-ins in Woolworth's in New York, and later marched in a feminist demonstration against the pageant in Atlantic City.

It was already announced that Leona was one of the semi-finalists for the Miss Universe crown that year. Her first runner-up assumed the title but did not participate in the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant for missing the preliminaries. Miss Gage explained that she needed the prize money to support her family.

Gladys Zender, Miss Universe 1957

There was a controversy regarding Gladys age when she won the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant that year. Her father stated to the press that Gladys was 17 years and 7 months old when she entered the pageant. It was considered below the minimum age of 18. Before the coronation ball, the pageant officials had a closed door meeting to discuss whether they would let Gladys keep the crown. Their verdict was that Gladys would keep the title since in Peru it is customary to round up ages if they are more than six months past their previous birthday.

Although the Miss Universe Organization refuses to recognize her as a Miss Universe, the international pageant afficionados still consider her as one. Panama's Justine Pasek, Oxana's first runner-up at the 2002 Miss Universe Pageant assumed the title after officially dethroning Oxana on Sept. 23, 2002.

While sex scandals floated around President Bill Clinton, rumors began circulating that he had raped Elizabeth Ward while serving as governor of Arkansas. In 1998, Ward publicly admitted a consensual sexual encounter with the then-governor in 1983. She later said, "I was backed into the corner by the press during the Starr investigation. It made it sound like my experience with Clinton was more like rape. I had no choice but to come forward and say it was consensual sex. It might be noted that a day after my interview went public, the judge in the Paula Jones civil suit dropped the charges against Clinton."
