Miss Peru hopefuls delivered gender violence statistics instead of their measurements last weekend at the annual pageant.

More than 20 women hoping to represent Peru in November's 66th Miss Universe Competition in Las Vegas recited facts about trafficking, femicide, and harassment to impress the judges instead of the typical physical measurements.

The winner, 20-year-old Romina Lozano, described her vital statistics as "3,114 women victims of trafficking up until 2014" on the most watched show in Peru that was broadcast on Sunday.

The organizers also projected newspaper clippings of stories about violence against women as the contestants posed in bikinis at a theater in the capital city, Lima.
