Another one of our amazing supports being amazing. Loving this blog. 'Using something which is "alright" to justify something which is wrong - No More Page 3'
I have noticed that some campaigners for Page 3 to be removed from The Sun Newspaper often put comments like, “We are not prudes,” and, “There is nothing wrong with boobs,” in their writing as if t…

I’ve just had a conversation with a 21 year old lad, serving me a coffee for breakfast. On seeing me reading The Independent, he commented “I’ve got The Sun upstairs if you want it?”
I asked him politely why he thought I’d want to read The Sun, to which he replied “no idea, just thought you might”
What ensued was a light hearted chat about assumption, gender, age and the younger generation believing middle aged, motorcycling, skydiving ex military type men read The Sun because it has boobies in it.
After which, in the presence of a few older women, he was fully aware of the No More Page 3 campaign, my full support for nmp3, my active membership, my dislike of the newspaper in general, my complete admiration for anyone willing to stand up for their beliefs, my love of only one particular set of boobs on ONE amazing woman (Miss James) and my need for a 5 shot large coffee with skinny milk before starting my day….. The older women clapped
He’s also running off now to sign the petition!

Earlier this month we were thrilled to announce:
'The National Alliance of Women’s Organisations unequivocally support No More Page 3.'
'Through our work with young women we understand that they say page 3 makes them feel disrespected, demeaned and belittled. A society that believes it is acceptable that young women feel this way is no society that we should be proud of. Thus challenging Page 3 is profoundly important. Young women want to feel appreciated for bearing their souls not their breasts. A symptom of gender inequality, page 3 has to go.
Keep fighting the good fight No More Page 3!’
Calling out to all digital feminists: vote on May 22 and use Europe as your forum - British Influence
Earlier this week I took part in a rather unusual event, by the standards of the Houses of Parliament. Scores of young women from different ethnic backgrounds, many wearing No More Page 3 t-shirts, squeezed into Committee room 10. There, under the gaze of the dead white men gracing the walls, they earnestly debated how […]
"Lucy’s message was simple- the widespread portrayal of young women in our media as passive, mute, white sex objects – including in a best-selling family newspaper – reflects the lack of visibility for women in other contexts and the imbalances of power at every level still present in our society.
I argued that it’s at the political level that these imbalances become most prominent, with devastating effects on women. Only 22pc of MPs are women. Only 3 women are Members of the Cabinet.”
