‘Because Boobs Aren’t News’ – Thousands Join Campaign to Ban Page Three Models

Should boobs be classed as news? Despite topless young models famously gracing Page Three for decades, a new campaign is sweeping the internet as thousands ask for The Sun to scrap glamour models from its pages.

Started just weeks ago by actress and author Lucy-Anne Holmes, the No More Page Three campaign has already attracted 17,000 signatures from women and men who believe that the topless photos are objectifying and degrading to women.

“Philip and Holly don’t flash up pictures of Danni, 19, from Plymouth, in just her pants and a necklace, on This Morning, do they, Dominic?” Lucy-Anne wrote on her petition page.

Speaking to Sun editor Dominic Mohan, she added: “No, they don’t. There would be an outcry. And you shouldn’t show the naked breasts of young women in your widely read ‘family’ newspaper either.

“Consider this a long overdue outcry.”

Campaigns to rid newspapers of half-naked models have tried and failed, most notably by Labour MP Clare Short in 1986 who the Sun later dubbed as ‘Killjoy Clare’. But in 2012 do you think there’s a chance this could work?

Are Page Three models a bit of harmless fun? Or do you think a ‘family’ newspaper and the most read paper in the UK should get rid of Page Three models once and for all?
