Page 3 u-turn a step in right direction – Girlguiding Scotland

Girlguiding Scotland has welcomed the news today (Tuesday 20 January 2015) that The Sun has decided to no longer feature topless models on page 3. Girlguiding Scotland’s Chief Executive Denise Spence said:

“Results from Girlguiding’s Girls Attitudes Survey show that 87% of girls feel they’re judged more on their looks than their abilities – so today’s news is a small step in the right direction.

“But if The Sun really wants to ensure girls and women are equally represented in their newspaper they must commit to promoting positive female role models on every page – not just page 3.”
