The idea of a freely available tabloid that prominently featured topless women would never fly in America. However, in Germany, best selling newspaper Bild has been doing just that for decades. Though as times have changed and women push to make their voices heard, the tabloid announced on Monday that it would be saying goodbye to its topless women.
“Many women find these pictures offensive or degrading, both here in the editorial department and also among our female readers,” Bild said on page nine of their Monday edition.
To show their girl-loving fans that the paper still has their desires in mind, the article still had women on display in underwear, which Bild described as “the more contemporary style of photography”.
Bild also noted that naked women won’t be leaving the pages of their paper entirely. While Monday’s announcement put an end to topless women photos produced by the paper itself, it will not stray away from publishing nude photos of women if they are the topic of a story Bild feels is newsworthy.
