A NEWPORT student studying in London organised a protest against The Sun’s Page 3 feature earlier this week.
Becky Evans, a third year Public Relations student at the University of Westminster who is originally from High Cross, staged it in support of the No More Page 3 campaign.
The former Rougemont School pupil, 20, said: “Page 3 has been running for more than 40 years and it’s about time women stopped being sexually objectified in a family newspaper.”
The founder of the No More Page 3 campaign, Lucy Anne Holmes, also attended the event.
She said: “We are thrilled that the University of Westminster students are getting behind the campaign in such a big way. They are joined by many other universities around the country, 28 of which have voted to stop selling The Sun on campus, with many others campaigning hard to do the same.”
The No More Page 3 campaign has collected about 136,000 signatures on its petition on the change.org website and a gained substantial media following since it was set up in summer 2012.
