This is a documentary which explores the latest ban on models within sport; Grid Girls. The Sun Page 3 girls were banned in 2015 and since then, Darts Walk-On girls and Formula 1 Grid Girls have also been axed. These bans have been strongly influenced by the feminist movement and I wanted to get their perspective on the ban and how this is a step forward in the fight against female objectification but also how it may be a step back in terms of giving women choice. I also spoke to a former grid girl to get her take on the ban and explore how it has affected her personally.
With thanks to NikkiLee, Dr Chris Pullen and Dr Nancy Roberts for partaking in this short documentary.
