The Sun Page 7 Fella

A Sun newspaper "Page 7 Fella" from February 1985.

Note the 1980s bouffant mullet hairdo!

The Sun Page 7 Fella caused a stir when he arrived in the early 1980s.

Was this equality at last?

No! said some - a male torso was in no way as revealing as a woman's breasts - many of which were to be seen on Page 3 over the years.

By 1988, the Sun had its own women's section - Sun Woman - and so at last there was a male Page 3, rather than a page 7. This particular "fella" dates from September '88. But, as some complained, it wasn't really equality. A male torso was in no way as revealing as a woman's breasts.
