A ROCKINGHAM girl is in the national finals for two pageants.
Lisa Bennet is a finalist in the Australia’s Power pageant for Miss Global Australia and Miss Intercontinental Australia.
The local beauty has created a Women 4 Women awareness campaign for women to help each other.
“I noticed a lot of women, especially on social media, attacking and bullying each other,” she said.
“These could be on topics such as what they wear, if they think that they are too skinny or too curvy, if they want to be stay at home mums or if they enter a pageant.
“We need to stop judging each other on our life choices and support each other.
“It’s hard enough being a woman in society without women putting other women down.”
Miss Bennet said Women 4 Women was to bring awareness that we need to build each other up and not tear each other down.
“It is something that really upsets me and I hope that I can make a difference whether big or small,” she said.

Miss Bennett is also fundraising for White Ribbon Australia.
“I chose White Ribbon Australia as my platform after watching the documentary Brave Miss World,” she said.
“It’s about Miss World 1998 Linor Abargil. Just seven weeks before she was crowned Miss World she was brutally attacked and raped.
“After winning Miss World, she vowed to do something about rape.”
Miss Bennett has an Everyday Hero page and will be running a raffle on her Facebook page.
