Three Girls - Page 3 - Netflix
Page 3 in the British tabloid newspaper The Sun was a formerly-included feature containing a large photograph of a bare-breasted female glamour model. The phrase Page 3 is a colloquial term originating from the fact that the feature was usually published on the print edition's third page. The feature first appeared in the newspaper on 17 November 1970 and on the official Page 3 website since June 1999, where it still continues. The terms “Page 3” and “Page Three” are registered trademarks of News UK, parent company of The Sun. However, the feature has been imitated in Britain's other “red top” tabloids and by newspapers internationally. The term “page three girl” has become a widely accepted generic term for models known for topless or semi-naked photoshoots. Page 3 was popular with Sun readers, but also attracted controversy throughout its run. Critics argued that Page 3 was misogynistic and objectifies and demeans women, while others believe that it was inappropriate for a generally circulated national newspaper. Campaigners advocated for legislation to ban Page 3 or tried to convince newspaper editors to voluntarily drop the feature or modify it so that models no longer appear topless. The No More Page 3 campaign was launched in 2012. The Irish edition of The Sun dropped topless Page 3 models in August 2013. After several days of non-appearance, an article appeared in stablemate The Times on 19 January 2015 indicating that the UK editions were dropping the feature too. The edition of 22 January 2015, in what became a one-off revival, was the last to include the feature.
