Deadline explains that over 75% of the cast and crew for Miss Arizona are female, with producers making the decision to support women on both sides of the camera. Producer DeAnna Cooper says that, "Our goal with Miss Arizona is to celebrate diverse identities and abandon 'victim feminism' ideology. I see it as a third-wave feminist film; these women are real, and one evening of self-discovery reveals their individual strength, determination and compassion."
