Description

More than 40,000 people have signed a petition calling for the editor of The Sun newspaper in the UK to stop putting topless women on Page 3. This has been The Sun's editorial practice for 40 years and some call it a British institution. Lucy Holmes began her anti-Page 3 campaign after buying the newspaper during the Olympics. The biggest image in the paper was of topless women, although this was at the time when athlete Jessica Ennis won gold for Team GB. VOR's Juliet Spare discusses the anti-Page 3 campaign with bloggers Charlotte Henry and Caroline Criado-Perez; former psychiatrist and medical journalist Dr Rita Pal and writer Terence Blacker. http://ruvr.co.uk/ Photo: Getty Images
