OBJECT and Turn Your Back on Page 3 submit evidence to the Leveson Inquiry
The joint OBJECT / Turn Your Back on Page 3 submission provides a snapshot of 'A Week In The Life Of' The Sun, The Daily Star and The Sport. It highlights the "Page 3‟ phenomenon, the adverts for the porn and sex industries, and other innumerable ways in which women – and even crimes against women, such as rape and murder – are routinely trivialised and sexualised within the UK press. It calls on the Leveson Inquiry to address this relentless portrayal of women as sex objects as part of its remit to examine the culture and ethics of the press, and it provides recommendations to tackle the hyper-sexualisation and objectification of women in UK tabloids.
