Sensationalism in certain sections of the press, 1954

The National Council of Women in Conference assembled, while appreciating the integrity of the greater part of the Press of this country, is deeply concerned by the unwholesome exploitation of sex and detailed reports of suicides and other horrors by certain newspapers and periodicals and urges the Press Council, while safeguarding the freedom of the Press, to take such steps as may be expedient to maintain those high standards of integrity, proportion and decency in publications which are the soundest aid to the morality of the nation’s reading public and especially its youth

Held in abeyance as from the Annual General Meeting in 1988
