Lads’ mags and the law

Campaigners want the removal from sale of titles such as Nuts as they are harmful to women. The sale of the magazines could mean a breach of sexual discrimination laws. Whatever the truth, it’s worth reflecting on what this would mean for all those other publications that include damaging representations of females. The lads’ mags may be a problem, but it could be argued that so too are teen girl magazines, except they aren’t as honest or transparent in their negative representations.
