National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers’ union

“The National Union of Teachers is pleased to be supporting the No more page 3 campaign. The consequences of gender stereotyping and the sexualisation of girls in the media are very real.

Portraying women as nothing more than objects to be looked at is entirely unacceptable for the 21 Century. Not only can such images impact on the self- respect and confidence of young girls it could also have a detrimental influence on boys as they develop views of women.

It is high time that we accepted it is simply wrong for a national family newspaper to be carrying such images.”
