Rumours have yet to be confirmed, but it appears that The Sun’s infamous Page Three may have been dropped. Since the 1970s, the newspaper has published explicit images, primarily topless women, to much controversy. In recent years, the page has been subject to the No More Page 3 campaign, founded by Lucy-Anne Holmes. This campaign, motivated by a hatred of sexism, the outdated nature of the page, and the easy access that children have to sexual material, has pressuring The Sun to remove the page. Fully information about the group can be found here.
If The Sun has decided to stop Page Three, then this really is a welcome snippet of goods news in a world which seems to have taken an even darker turn recently. Congratulations to the No More Page 3 campaign – you’ve made your mark and as far as I can see, it’s a pretty good one.
