Los Angeles - Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters didn't shy away when asked to comment on sexual harassment just after being crowned.
"If women take hands and stand together, we are unbreakable," said the 22-year-old Miss South Africa, "and we can say no to the things that are wrong in the workplace, at home or wherever you might go."
The topic arose during Sunday's competition when a fan-submitted question asked why it's important for men and women to work together to address the issue of sexual misconduct.
She also said she wants to champion other causes during her yearlong reign.
