Page Three boycotted by Nottingham University’s student shops

Page Three boycotted by Nottingham University’s student shops

Newspapers featuring “Page Three Girls” have been banned from sale in Nottingham Uni’s student union shops.

Feminist campaigners have started a boycott of papers featuring topless women, backed 15 votes to three at a committee meeting.

Serious opinions coupled with naked breasts, is Page Three harmful to women?

Jo Lockwood Estrin of the University of Nottingham Feminists group said "Seeing these images on a day-to-day basis normalises the idea that women are there and voiceless."

Editor of the Sun has previously stated that the newspaper continues to print Page Three Girls because it’s what the readers “wanted”.

But what do you guys think? Is Page Three creating a negative image for women – or just a bit of fun for the lads?
