The negative portrayal and treatment of women in the UK press is not a parental guidance issue - as our Prime Minister David Cameron suggests - it is a sex discrimination issue.

      Dear all,

      This petition is now addressed to Prime Minister David Cameron AND our Equalities Ministers. The petition now includes David's ridiculously ignorant claim that Page 3 is a parental guidance issue and by doing so he is failing to consider or acknowledge the overall effect Page 3 sexism has on women and girls in the UK.

      No, David, you're wrong, this isn't a parental guidance issue, it is a sex discrimination issue and sex discrimination is illegal.

      If David had taken any notice any of the evidence the women's groups gave at the Leveson Inquiry and the following 'Just The Women' report he might see there is a actually a culture of sexism within our press - symbolised by Page 3.

      Please keep signing and sharing. We need to keep the pressure up!

      Fran & Gabs.

      Frustrated that women are constantly portrayed as 'eye candy' in all media. Look at mainstream TV too, always an attractive female presenter, often next to an old man (The news and Strictly Come Dancing are perfect examples of this archaic attitude)

      Because its demoralising and dehumanizing, and it wasn't Gods plan for our world.

      Women are not sexual objects

      Women, girls and female children are often portrayed very negatively in the media, apart from the many misogynistic and sexist commercials altogether. No woman, no girl like to read/see something and boys and men are learning through this misogyny and think women are sex slaves. No wonder the sexual and domestic violence against women, girls and female children is growing more and more worldwide! We women and girls want to see in the future no repulsive and sexist advertising and articles, TV reports any more, that's disgusting and repulsive and not to tolerate in a democracy!

      using women to promote for commercial targets is huge scandal to our values and moral conventions ..
