The Heroine of "No More Page 3"

Sarah Edmonds of The F Word profiles Lucy-Anne Holmes, the activist who started the campaign to persuade British newspaper The Sun to stop publishing photographs of topless women on their third page.

It all began when Lucy bought a copy of The Sun during the London Olympics and, after reading about Jessica Ennis’ victories, turned to Page 3 to be confronted with a massive image of a topless young woman. The juxtaposition of a female athlete celebrating her medals with a Page 3 girl presenting her naked breasts was the turning point for Lucy.

The Sun is a Murdoch-owned paper, in case you’re curious.
