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.

More on lap-dancing

Some people at the last meeting asked for some more information about lap-dancing, so here’s some facts about it.

And here’s the page for OBJECT’s campaign.



What we’re about

We are a local human rights group taking action to promote equality between women and men.

We believe that equality between women and men benefits us all. In an equal society women and men are free to make choices without the pressure of gender stereotypes.

Through lap dancing, pornography and prostitution, women become objects for sale.

We are taking action to reassert the human rights of women.
