No More Page 3 campaign to sponsor Forest
 Women's Football News 19 Feb 2014
 
Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce that the 'No More Page 3' campaign group will be sponsoring the Senior Players Kit as a result of a successful awareness campaign that is currently benefiting a variety of charities and sportspeople. 
 
No More Page 3 is a campaign to stop The Sun from including pictures of topless glamour models on its page 3.
 
Its supporters include Girlguiding UK, Mumsnet, The British Youth Council, UK Youth (working with approx. 1 million young people, and 11,000 youth club, the NUT, ATL, NAHT (combining over 500,000 teachers, lecturers and Head Teachers) Unison, The National Assembly of Wales, The Scottish Parliament, The Royal College of Midwives, The Royal College of Nursing, Rape Crisis, Woman's Aid, End Violence Against Women's Coalition, Women's Sport Trust, 150 cross party MPs and 28 universities and 6 Oxford University Colleges have voted to stop selling The Sun until it drops the page 3 topless images..
 
NMP3 is a non-profit making grass roots campaign group who fund activities solely through t-Shirt sales with some profit also going to women's charities
 
The campaign group, who are also the sponsors of Cheltenham Town Ladies, heard of Nottingham Forest Ladies' plight and have now enabled the seniors to play in a new kit which is due for delivery in three weeks.
 
NMP3 said: "We are so excited to be sponsoring Nottingham Forest Ladies and nobody is more excited than our own Lisa Clarke who was born and bred in Nottingham and is a huge Nottingham Forest fan. To hear that the ladies' set up were struggling after so many years hard work makes it a pleasure to be able to help their cause.
 
"We at NMP3 are dedicated to seeing a more equal representation of women in the media. A big move towards that would be more coverage of women's sport as this currently only makes up 5% of the total sports coverage. Women are making news in sport every week and we don't get to see it. How fabulous would it be if we stopped the sexual images of women in our papers that make girls feel that their role is only to decorate and instead inspired the next generation of young women to action by showcasing sportswomen?
 
"Lisa and the rest of the No more Page 3 team are really looking forward to seeing the Forest ladies in their kits and cheering them on as they say "No More Page 3" every time they play. We are so thrilled and excited to be working with Nottingham Forest Ladies FC!!! #kiton #lotsofgoals"
 
Club Chairperson PJ Andrews responded: "To be supported by NMP3 is a huge boost and to highlight the work of NMP3 in the process is an initiative fully embraced by our club members. So far more than 135,000 have signed their petition and a fair few of our members are amongst them. The current kit is really worn so the seniors can now look forward to delivery of the new one and look and feel the part but know they are highlighting awareness of such a nationally supported project."
