Germany’s Bild newspaper, the world’s seventh-biggest newspaper, has stopped printing its page one girl.

(The page one girl, usually a busty, semi-clad and sometimes completely naked woman has been a staple at breakfast time all over Germany for years. The German tabloid declared, “It is perhaps a small step from the viewpoint of women, but it is a big step for Bild and for every man in Germany.” 

Even more amusingly they reprinted a headline from May 1970 – ”Women have less in the head than men” – and announced that ”this headline is of great embarrassment today”.

The Sun, which started showing topless page 3 girls in 1970 and was an inspiration for the Bild, declined to comment on Bild’s move,)
