Not More Page Three
The message couldn’t be clearer: with or without Page Three, representation of women in the paper is based almost entirely on the way they look and, more importantly, whether or not their appearance is acceptable to their male readership.
A piece I wrote for Women’s Views on News about the Sun’s latest attempts to target male readers, and Rupert Murdoch’s comments on women’s primary role in the newspaper (it’s as creepy as you would think).
Comedy Shorts and Writing Award Shortlist announced!
So this summer I entered this sitcom script I’d written called On the Shelf into Funny Women’s Comedy Writing Award, and today I found out that it has made the shortlist! I am over the moon that the judges saw something good in it, and just really proud to have a piece of work associated with such an awesome organization.
The top three finalists for the category are still to be announced, but whatever happens I’m feeling really positive and motivated to keep writing stuff and showing it to people (or at least telling people that I write stuff -yeah, maybe I should start doing that).
