CAROLINE LUCAS IS CAMPAIGNING TO SEE THE COMMONS STOP SELLING THE SUN UNTIL THEY HAVE DROPPED PAGE 3!!!!
LET’S HELP HER!!!
Now, she has tabled an Early Day Motion ( EDM) in the House of Commons.
An EDM is a way of asking the Government or Parliament to take action and Caroline has asked the parliamentary authorities to stop stocking the Sun until the Page 3 feature is removed.
The more MPs that add their name the more pressure is put on the authorities!
Please write to your own MP and ask for their support.

I am writing to ask you to add your name to Early day motion 253 which has been put forward by Caroline Lucas MP, and aims to see the parliamentary authorities stop selling The Sun until they cease to show the Page 3 images.
I am a firm supporter of the No More Page 3 campaign which now has over 106,000 signatures, public backing from UK Girlguiding (500,000 members) and UNISON (1.3 million members) and active support from over 120 cross party MPs.
These pictures were introduced in 1970, an incredibly sexist era. We do not think they should remain in 2013. Children should not, when faced with this paper, see pictures of men, in clothes, doing various activities, running the country, for example and then see one huge image of a woman in no clothes, doing nothing. It sends out an unacceptable message about a woman’s place in society.
Please do add your name and let’s see an end to this sort of media sexism in our society.
YOU! : )
