One side has women, the other side men. The result is a snapshot of the media

A new video from the No More Page 3 campaign looks at what happens when you cut out every picture of a man and a woman from the Sun over six months and place them side by side.

The result is this:

As the video, made by Kate Hardie and Andy Lowe, explains:

This is a newspaper renowned for sport and there's not a single picture of a woman doing sport. Not one.

The only older women on there are a woman on a mobility scooter, the Queen and Mrs Brown. There's a range of emotions on the men's side, the women are mainly smiling or pouting. What message do these images send? Every day?

A spokesperson for The Sun said:

Some people have too much time on their hands. Although we're glad they were one of more than 2 million who buy and enjoy The Sun every single day.
