Switch off the sex­ist por­tray­als

-

COLUM­NIST Karen Brooks ( C-M, Aug 31) should be thanked for the dis­clo­sure that many women’s mag­a­zines fea­ture lit­tle more than celebrity pic­tures and un­sub­stan­ti­ated gos­sip and that the TV show The Bach­e­lor also di­min­ishes women and por­trays them in a neg­a­tive light. We can demon­strate that de­mean­ing women in this way is not ac­cept­able by not buy­ing the mag­a­zines and by chang­ing the chan­nel. Lesley Bran­dis, Camp Hill
