Page 3 models refuse to wear ‘women’s rights’ campaign t-shirts

In an attempt to show how they feel about the lack of progress made by women’s liberation groups, Page 3 models up and down the UK have decided not to wear t-shirt supporting the cause.

Hayley, 23, Darlington told us ‘me and a few of the other girls think more should have been done to highlight the blatant sexism that still occurs in the workplace. It’s because of the lack of action we have decided not to wear t-shirts that have the phrase ‘Let’s kick exploitation out of page 3′ on our next shoots’.

As well as criticising the campaign, Gemma, 19, London said that the quality of the t-shirts was very poor. ‘I spoke to my boss at ‘The Sun’ and he agreed to let me wear it’ she told us. ‘He even went and fetched them for me, but every single one had been delivered wet.’
