I am 100% behind Lucy Holmes’ campaign to take ‘bare boobs out of The Sun’. Whilst topless female models continue to take the Page 3 spot in one of the most widely read newspapers in the world, objectification – and the sexualisation of women – will continue.
The argument for it – it’s the model’s choice, well-paid, her own body etc – is flawed. Women have more to offer the public than a glimpse of their breasts: intellect, creativity, business ideas, sporting ability… If we celebrated women’s minds and (clothed) bodies more – perhaps it wouldn’t be so tempting for young women to take their tops off in order to find fame.
