Message of support from Clare Short for our protest against Page 3 sexism!
"I have no doubt that page 3, with its millions of daily exposures, degrades women and distorts men's attitudes to women. "Take her,use her,throw her away", is the message. There are two ways that women can free themselves from this ugliness. The first is to understand what it is and realise that most women hate it, then the jibes about being jealous and/or screwed up about sex no longer work. The first wave of campaigning against page 3 achieved this for many women. The big victory of course would be to get rid of it. I am very proud of the new generation of women who have taken up this battle again. I wish you all strength and success. My best wishes and respect go to each of you."
