Take Action Now - Stop.Press.Porn!  


The Leveson Inquiry has exposed the profound lack of social responsibility of our press.

We believe that any debate regarding the 'culture and ethics of the press' hasinclude an examination of the way the press routinely represents women.

We are calling for Page 3 and newspaper porn to be seen as incompatible with a responsible press.

Protest against 42 years of Page 3 sexism!


Campaigners marked the 42nd anniversary of Page 3 by protesting outside News International and presenting a 6ft birthday card with images showing the difference between how women and men are represented. The images were so degrading that a photo of the card was removed from Facebook - if only it was that easy to get rid of sexism from our press!

Girls Gone Wild


'Girls Gone Wild' is an American porn franchise, headed by a convicted criminal.  It  targets drunk women and girls in night clubs, takes them to a 'Girls Gone Wild' tour bus to strip and have sex on camera in exchange for cheap merchandise.

It was due to tour the UK last year but after much campaigning, they decided to change their minds!
