Miss South Africa is Miss Universe 2017

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters took home the crown for South Africa after winning Miss Universe 2017 on November 26.

The 22-year-old business management graduate from North-West University bested first runner-up Miss Colombia Laura González and second runner-up Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett in the event held in Las Vegas.

Nel-Peters was asked about the most important issue she thought was facing women in the workplace in her Q&A portion.

“In some places, women get paid 75% of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours — and I do not believe that this is right,” she said. “I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world.”

The competition’s top 13 finalists were Thailand, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Spain, Ireland, Croatia, Great Britain, USA, Brazil, Canada, Philippines, Venezuela and China.
