So here I am, rapidly approaching 40 when feminism suddenly creeps up on me! Not with a crafty "psssttt...have you heard about the patriachy?" whisper in my ear though, oh no! With a giant slegdehammer style "Oy you!! What are you doing piffling away time, do you not know there's a world to save".

So within 12 months of "How to be a Woman" I am heavily embroiled in a huge anti-media sexism campaign that has taken over my heart and soul.

I also work full time as a nurse specialist, have 2 kids, 2 step kids and exercise a lot. Do I have time for all this? Don't be ridiculous. Is that going to stop me? Not on your nelly!

Objectification Does Not Promote Fitness

(2) Comments | Posted 4 October 2014 | (15:49)

With a health service that is more under threat than ever, physical fitness is a useful and helpful thing to promote. promote. The more we as individuals can do to look after our own health, the better it will be both for us and for society as a whole. The...

No More Page 3 and Child Eyes supporters are at present joined together in relentless discussion with the supermarkets in which we spend our money.

Following the success of the "Lose the Lads Mags" campaign, action was taken across most, if not all major stores, to...

Does Page 3 Increase Women's Awareness of Their Own breasts?

(1) Comments | Posted 6 April 2014 | (12:38)

The medical profession spoke this week in a BMJ article which called into question the Sun's Page 3 Vs Breast cancer campaign. They are by no means the first to do so.

Working as a nurse for 20 years has taught me that the vital theme...

Opportunity for Change

Something is occurring, there is a chink of light, a slow but steady turning of the tide in our UK media. It seems that the No More Page 3 campaign now has real momentum. It is not alone - Child Eyes has had some significant recent...

The Naked Truth

(0) Comments | Posted 22 October 2013 | (16:47)

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to speak at Nottingham Women's Conference and even luckier than that I was given a stall which was positioned beautifully to the side of the main auditorium so that I didn't miss any of the great speeches.

I would...

A Letter to David (Happy Birthday No More Page 3)

(0) Comments | Posted 21 August 2013 | (22:38)

So let me explain - David Dinsmore and I have been having a chat for a few weeks now.

...Well....I mean that in the loosest possible sense. I have been emailing and he has replied...er......once.

David replied to me once to politely say thanks but I probably won't change...

Not keeping Quiet

(1) Comments | Posted 14 June 2013 | (19:45)

It seems it is somewhat of a shame that Paul Connew has never been given the honour of being editor of The Sun as if he had we would not be having to talk about page 3 in the present tense, or so he tells us in his...

A Little Respect

(1) Comments | Posted 8 June 2013 | (19:03)

An unprecedented thing has occurred over the last two weeks, a thing it would be nice to celebrate, a thing which we have watched closely, with more than a little confusion, wondering quite where it was going......Page 3 of The Sun did not feature fully bare breasts for 11 days!...

Hello there minions! I have deemed it appropriate to engage with you all again from my ivory tower in order to tell you all what to think. Yes, that's it folks, here I sit with my manicure and my privilege and tell you what is right and what is wrong...

A Little Old Victory for People Power

(3) Comments | Posted 16 April 2013 | (23:29)

We had a little victory this week. I mean we've had quite a few "Whoop" moments of late but this was different. The thing is it has occurred to me, for reasons which I will explain (whether you like it or not) that people mostly have no idea whatsoever how...

Mostly Harmless? I Beg to Differ

(5) Comments | Posted 7 April 2013 | (23:46)

One of the most interesting things about campaigning for an end to Page 3 is the way different areas of the argument engage different people. When out on the street or on social media you work through all of the reasons why having sexualised images of women in mainstream media...

Oh Hello Mr Mohan

(2) Comments | Posted 31 March 2013 | (16:11)

On Saturday an unusual thing happened. The Sun (almost... in a round about way) acknowledged our existence.

You see for the last seven months they have done a rather sterling job of pretending we're not here at all. I mean, okay Rupert Murdoch replied to a supporter but he didn't...

Proud PC Crew

Working at No More Page 3 HQ we get accused quite regulalrly of being many things. Feminazis, prudes, pseudo-feminists, ugly with crap tits... you get the picture.

One that pops up now and then and was indeed levelled (perhaps not directly at us) by Mr M himself was that...
