Good on The Sun: Page Three Is Harmless Fun

As a woman, a journalist and a mum, I don't 'get' what the fuss is all about over page three. Comments about tomorrow's chip paper, poor little crack whores and sexual discrimination do not faze me. They do not convince most discerning consumers.

I looked at the Page 3 girls and hoped I'd look like Linda Lusardi when I was older. I blushed when various family members and friends would comment on my body - no part of it was left unscrutinised by the people that surrounded me, male and female. I'd say that started around the age of eight.

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.

This one picture that tells young girls their aspiration and achievement will be encouraged and recognised, that women have the right to claim equal visibility with men, and that our opinion matters. The removal of that symbol is devastating.

It was only when I lived and worked in Honduras briefly aged 21 and suffered daily cat-calls, hisses and spitting from local men in the street, that something truly and irrevocably sank in. Being treated differently for occupying a female body wasn't just frustrating and irritating.

So I will not mince my words in saying that Page 3 needs to go, not just because it is a national embarrassment and a dinosaur of the 1970s but because it is anything other than a "harmless fun".

It's wrong that the dominant image of a woman in The Sun is consistently one of a young, bare-breasted model posing in a thong because it sends a powerful message about a woman's position in society: that her primary role is to be sexually attractive to men.
