Not Buying It was set up in 2016 by a group of people concerned by the porn and sex trade and their normalising by the mass media. We are women and men, mums and dads, campaigners & journalists, educationalists & mental health professionals ... And you?
We have been asking the ASA to stop ads for prostitution and porn in our Great British Press for the last 2 years . 50% of children read newspapers. What's more, The ASA is a Public Body with a legal duty to promote gender equality. The Equality and Human Rights Commission is now looking into this.
We've sent a copy of The Sport to every MP asking why porn is being sold as a Newspaper and asking them simply to ensure existing 'retail codes' are ammended to get it off the bottom shelf.
A landmark case in May 2017 showed Local Councils might be breaking the law by granting strip club licenses without properly considering the impact on women's equality and safety. We are currently supporting another legal challenge using equality law. You can use this to tell your Council to stop licensing strip clubs too
