The Sun's Page 3 Topless Women Issue

Can you imagine the outrage if an American daily newspaper decided to start publishing photos of topless women inside their pages?

The UK's Sun has something called Page 3 Women, which is just that. Every day. Every page 3. A topless woman.

It seems like such a sad representation of our society that in this day and age topless women would adorn a news daily.

And I'm not a man-hater or anti-topless women. I think the nude body is a beautiful thing.

But I think there's a place for everything. And a daily newspaper that little girls might pick up and glance at is not the place for representing women as simply objects.

Check out my blog for the UK's Huffington Post on this issue: Former Topless Model Advocates Highlighting Women's Talents and Abilities in the Sun.

    But you would have jumped at the chance to be a Page Three Girl 20 years ago.

  2. I'm not sure. I've asked myself about that. I didn't know about Page 3's existence back when I was modeling. I think it's the intrusion of cheesecake into the mainstream paper that seems weird. I kept those two worlds separated back then. I've got to think about this some more...

    But we have boobs in mainstream venues such as Vogue, Marie Claire, and about half a dozen HBO miniseries. I guess you are just drawing a line, but what if these models were in bikinis? Is it just the boobs?
