Twelve Things the No More Page 3 Campaign Is NOT

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...

We're Not Apathetic: Telling Us We Are Is Undermining Democracy

We're not interested in winding back the clock. We don't see the world as an epic struggle between capital and labour. And we don't have all the answers. Yet. What we do see is people being disempowered. And not just by the government. What marks out the political discourse of my generation is that we have organised against any power which negatively impacts our lives.

No More Page 3 at Warwick Campus!

SUs around the country have been voting to remove The Sun from their campuses, and have been successful. For us at Warwick though, it's a bit tougher. We do not own or manage the store selling the newspaper. Therefore we can't just make a vote and stop. Unfazed by this, we at NMP3W believe that this is something we can, and must, achieve. We do not want this 'institution' to continue on our grounds.

Why 'Lose the Lads Mags' Is About Class, Not Sex

There's old morals at play in the world of the interfering liberal. So burlesque is empowering, but stripping isn't; nudity in lads mags is , but nakedness and sexuality is fine as long as it takes place in the glossy pages of a high end fashion magazine or on the walls of their friends' art galleries. They can handle it, you see - not like the rest of us.

Even After the Irish Edition Drops Topless Page 3, The Sun Et Al Still Don't Get Responsible Journalism

What concerns me far more is that this amounts to little more than drop in the ocean when placed next to the mind-numbing, anti-intellectual, fact deficient bloviating peddled by most redtops.

Amanda Palmer Is Spot on - "It's Just a Naked Woman"

On Friday 12 July, something wonderful happened. It was Amanda Palmer "going for broke" in an open, naked letter to the Daily Mail. The singer-songwriter made the performance as part of her set at the Roundhouse in Camden, delighting the audience with her comedic Waltz which confronted the Daily Mail for their sexist reporting on her appearance at Glastonbury.

Page 3 Is Not All About the Boobs

Since the Green MP Caroline Lucas gave a recent speech about media sexism in Parliament, the press and internet have been inundated with opinion pieces, blog posts, and forum discussions. But more often than not our politicians, journalists, and bloggers have simply retread the same old ground.

The No More Page 3 campaign is gathering pace at an extraordinary rate. It is in the right place at the right time. Public concern over easy access to sexualised imagery, and the influence of this on the psychology of children, has never been higher.

The Week That Was: A Time and Place

We are all living through history; that much is certain. There are, however, specific times or incidents when it is possible to imagine the school lessons in decades to come, when pupils will be studying with rabid intensity the very events unfolding around us right now. The saga of Prism, or the saga of Edward Snowden as Hollywood will surely repackage it, has to be one such event. With a script to rival a new Bourne movie, the 'spy story of the age' as the Guardian prefix it, has all the hallmarks of a milestone in global history.

A Little Respect

So, now and then, it seems The Sun takes itself seriously, it grows up and cleans up its act as a show of 'respect' for a particular tragedy and, in doing so, its editorial team reveal two important things.

Sign the petition and say no to Page Three because women contribute to society in many ways that do not involve a man's erection.

Absolutely No More Page 3?

My issue with Page 3 is not that it features topless women. My discomfort stems from setting an impossible target of perfection for young women that is already so readily available in women's magazines.

Feminism and the Twenty-Something

As long as we live in a world where 9/ 10 rapes go unreported, we will need platforms that allow discussion and we need to keep on giving a fuck because that's what equality really means, caring and looking out for each other, not fighting against each other and giving up in the face of adversity, because the battle isn't won , not quite yet.

Guiding Girls to Awareness

In a true display of girl power, Girlguiding UK now officially backs the 'No More Page 3' campaign, a testament to an adaptable, forward-thinking youth organisation. Despite my own short fling with Guiding, I think this demonstrates the enduring potential for the group to give a solid grounding for young women in the UK.

No More Page 3 supporters do not look down their nose at the Page 3 girls at all, but what about the newspaper in which their pictures are showcased? How much are these women paid for their work in comparison to the profit made?

'Thank you for taking the time to post your views on our wall. This is entirely a matter for the Sun - it is not for us to comment on editorial decisions.' So said Tesco's 'Customer Care' when a No More Page Three supporter asked why it continues to shovel advertising spend into the Sun.

These commenters are under the impression that feminists should campaign "on some REAL issues rather than this pathetic shit." They think that the campaign is an easy way for us to "preen" and insidiously present ourselves as "jolly brave and radical", when the reality is that we are afraid to tackle the real sexist issues.
