Green Party MP Caroline Lucas’s #sexistpress campaign

On International Women’s Day 2013, Green MP for Brighton Caroline Lucas launched a campaign on Twitter encouraging people to send in their examples of sexism in the press to #sexistpress.

So if you thought that the below images in the Sun and Daily Mail newspapers of Reeva Steenkamp, or Leah Davies, a woman who was recently killed in a motorbike accident, are in extreme bad taste, do look for other examples and hashtag #sexist press to @CarolineLucas on Twitter.
