Rebecca Ann King

Rebecca Ann King Brief Biography

Rebecca Ann King (born 1950, in Hancock, Iowa) is most noted as holder of the 1974 Miss America title. Heralding the arrival of feminism in this most traditional of events, Rebecca King was a law student, who famously expressed feminist political views at the Miss America Pageant's morning-after breakfast following her crowning. The following year, when King crowned her successor, Miss Texas Shirley Cothran, feminists were again in Atlantic City protesting the pageant. King went on to earn her law degree, while Cothran earned her doctorate degree, in what pageant historians view as an ironic turn of events, given the protests concerns about the pageant's presumed degradation of women.

King received a law degree from the University of Denver School of Law and became a practicing domestic-relations attorney specializing in divorce. She pressured the Miss America Pageant to award points for the interview section of the competition, and has spoken in favor of female empowerment at many schools and organizations. She married banker George Dreman and has since used the name Rebecca King Dreman.
