After 28 years and 10,000 breasts, ‘Bild’ discovers International Women’s Day

16 March 2012 at 2:50 pm

Bild , Germany’s best-selling daily newspaper, has decided to remove its trademark pictures of topless women from the front page in an International Women’s Day gesture towards complaining readers, it announced yesterday.

The tabloid paper, which sells about four million copies a day, will now carry the images on page three instead, a format favoured by British tabloids.

“It is perhaps a small step from a female perspective, but for Bild and all men in Germany it is a big step,” the paper said in an article.

Topless women on the cover have been part of Bild ’s identity for 28 years. More than 5,000 have bared their breasts there since 1984.

“Of course Bild wants to remain sexy. But in a more modern way,” it said. – (Reuters)
