No more nipples in your newspaper

The No More Page Three campaign, aiming to ban topless images of women from newspapers, has gained further momentum this week.
The campaign focuses on the way page three allows women to be viewed as sexual objects, and how in the 21st century boobs do not have a place next to serious news. Since joining Twitter at the end of August No More Page Three has 723 followers, with many celebrities and journalists joining in the fight. The petition also now has around 2,500 signatures as they directly confront Dominic Mohan, Editor of The Sun. The Sun has argued for many years to keep bare breasts in their publication, saying that it makes the newspaper stand out from their competition and feels that eliminating the page will alienate those readers that approve - proof of how short sighted the paper is, as there is no consideration for those many potential readers that are discouraged from buying the publication.
