Lose the lads mags!! – Object & UK Feminista campaign

30 May

Lads’ mags promote sexist attitudes and behaviours. They normalise the idea that it’s acceptable to treat women like sex objects.

But customers and shop employees don’t have to put up with it any longer! UK Feminista and Object have obtained brand new legal advice showing that displaying and selling lads’ mags and papers with Page 3-style front cover images can constitute sexual harassment or sex discrimination under the Equality Act 2010. Employees could take legal action against shops on this basis. Where the magazine is visibly on display, customers could also have a claim.

The writing’s on the wall for retailers: by selling lads’ mags they are open to legal action. But these companies will only act to avoid this if they think enough people know about it. Can you sign the petition to lads’ mags retailers and then share with your friends?
