No More Page 3

Lucy Ann-Holmes has started a campaign to get The Sun to drop the out-dated and offensive page 3. I’ll be honest, I’ve been dealing with the reality of page 3 by pretending that it doesn’t exist, but that’s not helpful. And it’s not going to halt the sexual objectification of women (something that has been proven to contribute to violence against women), either.

So. Please read Lucy’s excellent piece here and then go sign the petition. Thank you!

Stop Press! Lucy’s campaign has been featured in The Huffington Post. Fabulous. Let’s do this thing!

Also, Keris Stainton wrote a wonderful, personal piece about the campaign here.
