If ever there was a time for a brand that truly spoke to women on their own terms, this is it. Some have not only managed to get it right but are finding interesting new ways of engaging their audience using the constantly changing tools we have at our disposal.

Why I'll Never Stop Being an Opinionated Woman

I will always support a woman's right to do what she wants with her body. Just please, don't do it and call it news. So excuse me if I don't stop being an opinionated woman. Sorry if I don't burn my Sociology Degree certificate (along with the bras, of course) because my feminism offends you.

Four Things People Keep Getting Wrong About the Page 3 Debate

Institutionalised sexism is dangerous because it assimilates into our culture to the point that we don't see it anymore, and conforming to the dominant narrative ends up being mistaken for a choice.

Why Page 3 and Charlie Hebdo Are Not the Same

Platform is valuable commodity and the supply of privileged platforms far outstrips demand. This is precisely because very few people have the former while almost everyone has, at some point, availed themselves of one of the latter.

Ladies Who Impress Say #NoMorePage3

Back when I signed the petition a couple of years ago, I imagined my goddaughter, who turned five last week, growing up, coming across The Sun one day and wondering why a mainstream newspaper would display a photo like that.

To Page 3 or Not to Page 3: What Does This Mean for Female Nudity?

Ellie Holland | Posted 22.03.2015 | UK Lifestyle

I have no doubt that many Page 3 models enjoy what they do but they are not really exploring in different types of sexiness nor are they challenging what it means to be a woman. That's not being a 'hater' or a 'jealous cow'- that' just stating a fact.

Page 3 Isn't Just Harmless Fun and Today The Sun Proved It

Kat Lister | Posted 24.03.2015 | UK Lifestyle

It's smug, it's nasty, it's a publicity triumph. It also reaffirms what campaigners have always said about Page 3: That The Sun's loyalty to Page 3 is a commitment to disempowering women under the guise of that age-old defence of sexism: "it's just harmless fun".

The Problem with the Page 3 'Model'

Before anyone suggests it - no I'm not a prude and I'm certainly not offended by the sight of a pair of breasts, I'm more offended by what the Page 3 girls represented to young females, particularly when it comes to describing them as 'models'.

The Sun's Page 3 U-Turn Is a Step Forward for Women

While we may have no power on the decision to kill off Page 3, public opinion is everything. There is arguably far greater power in influencing the mood around representations of women in media. And this has certainly happened.

I Am a Smelly Pirate Hooker and I Support No More Page 3

Men who wouldn't win a prize at Crufts feel entitled to judge the appearance of women and find them lacking, as if they've wilfully failed to conform to conventional standards of beauty out of spite. Men who might easily be mistaken for Dobby the House Elf, feel wronged when the office isn't staffed with eye candy of a standard they deem high enough.

Taking the bare boobs out of The Sun is a momentous step in the right direction. But let's not dance in the street just yet (maybe just a few fireworks and a glass of bubbly?). We're not done people.

The No More Page 3 Campaign Is a Victory for Free Speech But Not For Feminism

Robert Sharp | Posted 23.03.2015 | UK
Robert Sharp

At first blush, the success of the No More Page 3 campaign does not look like a victory for free speech. After all, a thing that was being published, is no longer being published. The prudish censors have prevailed, right? Look again... Is the absence of naked breasts from Page 3 a victory for feminism, though? I worry that it is not.

No More Page 3 Is a Huge Achievement - But There's Still a Long Way to Go

I babysat a young girl last year where a copy of the Sun had been left open on a coffee table. When she saw page 3 she looked at me and asked if the image was what boobs are meant for! But while it's great that topless women have been taken out of the Sun, there is still a long way to go.

No More Page 3 - Is This Really a Step Forward for Society?

Keeley Hazell | Posted 22.03.2015 | UK Entertainment
Keeley Hazell

We receive mixed messages and begin to think that if you're sexy you can't be smart. Therefore we don't want to be viewed as sexy because we believe it disregards our intellectual abilities. But is avoiding sexuality and getting rid of things like Page 3 the answer to our problem? Or is it just repressing sexuality?

A New Low for The Sun

Stephanie Davies-Arai

Many people will look at today's Page 3 - described by the Official Page 3 on Twitter as 'seriously sexy' - and feel uncomfortable about the inclusion of a picture of an innocent baby. It is the Sun newspaper which needs to be held to account for being the first to include a picture of a newborn in a sexualised soft porn image. A new line has been crossed and it represents a disturbing new low for the British press.
