mads lags closes2


Newspapers are reporting that sexist lads’ mag ‘Nuts’ is to close after seeing its sales plunge by a third following the publication being pulled from Co-operative supermarket stores. Last year thousands of us joined the Lose the Lads’ Mags and Child Eyes campaign – and the Co-operative’s subsequent action is testament to what’s possible when we speak out together.

The news comes just two months after Front magazine announced its closure – another pornographic lads’ mag that was pulled from Co-operative stores.

For ten years Nuts has lined supermarket shelves with images portraying women as dehumanised sex objects. The research is all too clear on the consequences of this: attitudes that underpin violence against women and normalise the objectification of women.

Let’s hope this is the beginning of the end to these misogynistic publications!
