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

Lisa Clarke | Posted 06.06.2014 | UK
Lisa Clarke

Page 3 is not about breast cancer awareness, it is soft-pornography, and the evidence would suggest that it has no place either in body confidence or in health promotion.

Twelve Things the No More Page 3 Campaign Is NOT

Jack Fletcher | Posted 02.06.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Jack Fletcher

I have never seen so much confusion surrounding a campaign than 'No More Page 3' (NMP3). Yes, I am young and not world weary, but as a supporter of the cause I have certainly grown weary of the misconceptions and the false assumptions about what the organisers are saying. So I propose to tell you exactly what the campaign is NOT...

How 'Page 3 vs Breast Cancer' Backfired on The Sun

Rosie Tallant | Posted 15.05.2014 | UK
Rosie Tallant

This month The Sun newspaper started a new campaign that attempted to set Page 3 up as a supporter of breast cancer charities. This involved a front page featuring a topless model, with a commentary of how to check breasts for potentially cancerous lumps and suggestions of what to name your breasts.

Nottingham University Students Ban Topless Newspapers

Stop Misusing the Term 'Empowerment'

Helen Reeves | Posted 11.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Helen Reeves

With the common mantra that "sex sells" and the idea that we have now reached a cultural peak of sexual openness and opportunity, a so-called 'post-feminist' outlook might argue that women today are now more sexually empowered to make a broader range of sexual choices. But whilst it's laudable that women are allowed to be sexual and openly enjoy sex; surely empowerment would be doing that on our own terms?

International Women's Day 2014 saw, for the fourth year, the Southbank Centre organise their spectacular and diverse WOW - Women of the World festival. And on show was the good, the bad and the ugly side of feminism today.

Page 3 on Page One

I've been pondering all day, why exactly this makes me feel (and believe me I've tried to think of a more erudite word) icky. It's sneaky and manipulative; it's a way of getting page 3 onto the front cover by pretending to care about female health, but more than that, the linking of a life threatening disease with cheap titillation is horrible.

Breast Cancer Charity CoppaFeel! (And Critics) Speak Out About Controversial Page 3 Partnership

Why Page 3 Is Not Good for Positive Body Image

Jo Harrison | Posted 01.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Jo Harrison

One message that I, and thousands of others, take from Page 3 is that to be desirable and validated as a woman one must look a certain way and also be devoid of troublesome things like a personality, or opinions, or desires of our own.

An Open Letter to the Editor of The Sun, David Dinsmore, Regarding Page 3

Emily Robb | Posted 27.04.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Emily Robb

Dear Mr. Dinsmore, Am I being naïve to suppose that you will read this letter or that it will matter at all to you? Probably. Considering that 135,708 people have signed a petition asking you to do away with the daily degradation in your newspaper that is Page 3 and still you have not responded, I very much doubt that this one letter will make you change your mind. But I'm going to try.

Should We Ban The Sun Because of Page 3?

Gemma Parry | Posted 27.04.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Gemma Parry

Yes, Page Three should go. It is outdated, it is pointless and it has no place in newspapers. It is demeaning, not just for the women on the page, but for the men, women, boys and girls who have to see it. It should go. But banning the publication and taking away basic human rights to a free press for one bad page isn't the way forward.

Student Feminism: Refining the Blurred Lines In 2014

Marley Miller | Posted 17.04.2014 | UK Universities & Education

2013 was the year the NUS decided enough was enough for 'lad culture'. Their "That's what she said" report sparked a new wave of feminism on campuses across the UK, bursting with students ready to put down their razors, bin their copy of The Sun (or at least Page 3) and tell their student union to pull the plug on Blurred Lines.

Simone de Beauvoir and Page 3: Why Banning the Degradation of Women Still Matters

Why do we continue to reduce women to their physical image? Simone de Beauvoir once said "...modern woman is everywhere permitted to regard her body as capital for exploitation." Objectification is hurting women.

Recently the No More Page 3 team noticed that @rustyrockets had been responding to our supporters, saying he was behind us and expressing how he wanted a T-shirt. Did this surprise me? No. If anything I'm surprised it took him as long as it did!

Our University Students' Unions Are Ideally Placed To Help No More Page Three - And To Benefit From It, Too.

This is a genuinely exciting opportunity for our students' unions. With a history of seeking change for the better and tackling discrimination, they are uniquely placed to speak up for and strengthen the No More Page 3 movement.

Gender Equality in 2014

As I write this, Russell Brand has just tweeted a picture of himself with a 'No More Page Three' T-shirt: men are starting, slowly, to take note of the problem of gender inequality, and possibly a sexism-free future isn't completely fantastical.

Writer and actor Lucy-Anne Holmes started the campaign in the wake of Jessica Ennis' incredible gold win at the 2012 Olympics, an amazing feat by anyone's standards and a rare opportunity for a woman to be recognized for sporting success in a world where newspaper sports pages are dominated by the boys.

Feminism Isn't For Men Too - In Fact, It's Not For Women Either

Have you ever read something you think is so outrageously wrong you have to correct it? Well, that feeling overwhelmed me when I read fellow Huffington Post UK blogger Jack Fletcher's post entitled Feminism Is For Men Too. I'm now going to spend the next few hundred words explaining and defending why not agreeing with feminism is not the same as being a misogynist.

Outdated, Sexist, Unnecessary, Offensive - Why I Support No More Page 3

Daisy Lindlar | Posted 09.03.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Daisy Lindlar

I'm not anti-boobs. I quite like my boobs. If you want to sunbathe topless, go ahead. I think that women should be free to breastfeed in public. But there is a time and a place for boobs, and a national "family" newspaper is not it. Boobs are not news. Over half the population have them. They should not be the basis of the value women are given in the media.

On the Body Positive Argument for Page 3

Samara Jundi | Posted 19.02.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Samara Jundi

Page 3 may be liberating for the models themselves, but the messages it sends out are oppressive: attractive women are thin, white, feminine and young, and women themselves are simply sexual objects. For that reason I fail to see why this feature should remain in the UK's biggest-selling newspaper where soft pornography should not even be present, unless the feature is altered to become representative of all - and I mean all - women and a male version is created.

The Effect of the Sun's Page Three On UK Society

Jack Fletcher | Posted 18.02.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Jack Fletcher

We all know sex sells but the topless women pictured on The Sun's Page 3 are being objectified - not treated as real and normal human beings. There is no doubt the women are doing it out of free will but it is all about context as a NEWSpaper.
