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
