Now you’ve told your MP, and the advertisers that you’re serious about this. Perhaps you might be able to email the contacts in your address book.
We’ve written a template email for you to cut and paste, so it won’t take you too long. (we do liberally use exclamation marks and the word ‘Ooo’ please delete as appropriate!!!)
Sorry for mass impersonal group email but it would have taken me forever to do this otherwise.
I am supporting a campaign called No more Page 3 in a big way. It’s appealing to Dominic Mohan, the editor of The Sun, to please stop showing the bare breasts of young women in this our most widely read family newspaper.
The largest female image in the newspaper shouldn’t be of a young woman standing there in her knickers. We are asking that women be represented with respect in our most widely read paper, like men are.
I would like to encourage you to please sign the petition here. We could really do something positive here, not just for ourselves but for future generations of women and men.
If you are sitting on the fence about this issue, can I ask you to have a read of this beautiful article by Lucy Mangan.
Thank you so much.
Ooo and I really do hope you’re well!
