Make Modesty Wraps Law
CVM is supporting a campaign to make modesty wrap covers a legal requirement on all explicit magazines.
The purpose is singular and clear - to seek to ensure that all magazines which contain explicit images and text are covered in a 'modesty wrap' to ensure the protection of young children and adults alike. Modesty wraps are essentially black covers or 'bags' which the magazine is placed in for display purposes. The only content that is then shown is the magazine title.
A government e-petition has been set up until March of this year, and we're asking for you to add your name to the list. You can find it here:
Please sign the petition, then get others to do the same!
There is also a Facebook page to support this campaign that contains more information and an ongoing discussion on the topic, see it here: facebook.com/pages/Make-Modesty-Wraps-Law/272264356165952
