Tender Issues Statement On The End of Page 3

Tender was pleased to learn that The Sun appears to have dropped ‘Page 3’.

While we know that this won’t mean the end of the objectification of women in The Sun or the media in general, it is important to step back and take a moment to celebrate the result of decades of campaigning that started with Clare Short and have been continued by Lucy Anne Holmes and No More Page 3.

The work is far from done, but today we feel the impact of the bravery and dedication of those who stand up for equality. The absence, or even alteration of Page 3, has received a great deal of public support, and it is so meaningful for the young people we work with to see that what is perceived to be the ‘norm’ can be challenged and changed.  Today is a good day. Tomorrow can be better.
