Ann Simonton has been arrested and jailed 11 times for committing acts of non-violent civil disobedience. In the 1980s, she and Nikki Craft led the "Myth California" protests, a series of counter-pageants which disrupted the Miss California pageant in Santa Cruz, California and San Diego, California, protesting "the objectification of women and the glorification of the beauty myth." The protests garnered international attention, and were partially responsible for the Miss California pageant eventually relocating from Santa Cruz.---from Wikipeida
