Since it started in 1970, the Sun’s Page 3 feature – a photo of a topless woman – has become both a British institution and a lightning rod for debates about the objectification of women. Campaigners have argued for it to be scrapped, while others have defended it on the grounds of press freedom. So is it a genuine problem, or just harmless fun? And what does it say about sexism in the press
more broadly? We open with a keynote by Eleanor Mills, chair of Women in Journalism and Editorial Director of the Sunday Times. Speakers include journalist India Knight, ex-Loaded editor Martin Daubney, model and business woman Katie Price and Laura Bates, founder of Everyday Sexism.
