WHAT GOES WRONG WITH PAGE 3


Exposing nudity to children Nudity has its place in certain magazines or newspapers dedicated to adults. They cannot be bought by underaged individuals. Having nudity in a widely accessible newspaper like The Sun is against the rules of our society, as well as the law.

Preventing sexism and feminism Placing a naked woman in every edition of the newspaper is an informal invitation to sexism. Women feel objectified by seeing themselves as nothing but naked bodies, especially in a newspaper that everyone has access to.

Opting for integrity Whether people buy The Sun for news, announcements, ads or just articles, placing naked bodies on Page 3 will inevitably lead to a lack of integrity throughout the population. It kills the purpose of a newspaper.

WHAT NO MORE PAGE 3 IS ABOUT

No More Page 3 is a campaign started by Lucy-Anne Holmes in the summer of 2012. The campaign was directly targeted against The Sun – one of the most popular newspapers out there. Every edition included naked glamorous models on the third page, affecting the integrity of newspaper readers and objectifying women.

By March 2013, the campaign turned into a petition that was signed by almost 85,000 people. It all went like a snowball since then. Almost two years later, by January 2015, the petition had over 215,000 signatures. Campaigners attempted to boycott The Sun from multiple directions. They also persuaded Lego to stop advertising within its pages. It happened eventually, but Lego denied that the move had anything to do with No More Page 3. Further smaller campaigns were conducted to aid No More Page 3 and each of them contributed to its success.

In the summer of 2013, just one year after the campaign was started, the newspaper editor replaced the naked model with a glamorous model in a swimsuit. The approach was applauded by campaigners, yet it was only a temporary idea. With time, more people joined the campaign. At some point, 30 universities decided to boycott the newspaper. The campaign also teamed up with Child Eyes in the attempt to redesign the displays in the supermarket newspaper, which exposed children to nudity. By the fall of 2014, two supermarkets have already decided to implement the change – Waitrose and Tesco claimed they would implement the design.

Since then, the third page has been removed, yet it had one revival attempt. The article was ended in January 2015. One week later, there was one more edition that featured the page with a glamorous topless model. However, it was one edition only and since then, Page 3 and its topless models have become history.


TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THINGS

AMBITION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS

Objectifying women has never been such an intense topic until No More Page 3 came to life.

The campaign worked on multiple fronts and attacked nudity from more directions. First, it was outrageous for children and underaged teenagers to see nudity in a supermarket newspaper widely available everywhere. It was not sealed and age restrictions did not apply, regardless of featuring topless women on the third page. Second, Page 3 was seen as a campaign to objectify women and promote sexism.



The campaign was a success because of the hundreds of thousands of people joining it.

No More Page 3 was a successful petition and it still runs around as a campaign. It was one of the most conclusive petitions ever started, especially as its impact was huge. It literally changed one of the largest newspapers in the world and brought in a new wave of criticism against sexism and random nudity where it does not belong.

Caroline Lucas was one of the most important supporters of the campaign. The Green MP joined and signed the petition, but also expressed her support in a few public speeches. Further support from politicians could have been the element that changed The Sun. More than 140 MPs have expressed their support against Page 3, whether by signing the petition or expressing their support. This was one of the toughest hits for the newspaper editors, who decided to make a change.

Plenty of organizations have joined No More Page 3 in different forms – some of them by having representatives sign the petition, while others publicly mentioning their support – Girlguiding UK, Women's Aid, White Ribbon Campaign and others.

Criticism has also occurred, including from people who were supposed to be part of the campaign. Feminist Rowan Pelling said that the high levels of sexism in lads mags and over the Internet are far more concerning than Page 3 and the topless models being featured. Such cases were quite isolated though, as most people involved opted to support the petition.

Since Singapore is a tropical country so the temperature in summers also increases the electricity bills but with such a unique position of the building, the electricity bills of the residents are surely going to be low.

Nearby MRT and Bus stations – The location of the condos gives you easy access to the two MRT stations of the town which are Kovan MRT station and Hougang MRT station.

Three major expressways of Singapore – Being situated at the edge of Hougang, the condos have got the best location if you talk about the overall connectivity of the country. There are three major expressways located near the site of Florence Residence. The first is the Pan Island Expressway which is the oldest as well as the longest expressway of the country. It is stretched in the distance of 42.8km and connects the west and east sides of the country. The second is CTE or Central Expressway of Singapore and it is stretched in the distance of 15.8 km, connecting north and south ends of the country while the third one is Seletar Expressway which is 10.8km long.

So, it can be said that living in one of these condos will be very beneficial for residents, apart from enjoying the top-notch luxurious amenities, they are also getting some huge benefits from the location of the township.
