Retailer Apologises To Customers For Gloria Steinem Interview


Gloria Steinem

In business, it's impossible to please everybody. Land's End learnt that the hard way when they released an interview with legendary feminist Gloria Steinem, before subsequently taking it down. They've been forced to apologise to the pro-lifers out there for consorting with a pro-abortion activist.

The Wisconsin retailer published an article featuring the women's rights campaigner as part of the 'Legend Series' in their catalogs, to celebrate individuals who have made a difference in the world. While she discussed female equality at length with company CEO Federica Marchionni, many consumers were thoroughly unhappy with her involvement and vowed to boycott the store after accusing them of standing with Steinem on the issue of abortion, some of them being local schools that get their uniforms from the brand. Now, though, Land's End have promptly pulled the interview and apologised to all of their horrified customers.

Gloria Steinem Defends Kim Kardashian: Her Body Is Not 'Public Property'


Gloria Steinem Kim Kardashian Christian Bale

Gloria Steinem, Christian Bale's mother, has fiercely defended pregnant star Kim Kardashian from recent media criticism regarding her weight.

The stringent feminist spoke out at the Annual Diane Von Furstenberg Awards in New York, telling Us Weekly, 'Our bodies are never public property under any circumstance. It's wrong, and people in the street who feel the right to touch a pregnant woman's belly ought to be arrested for harassment. Our bodies belong to us, and if we don't invite touching, we shouldn't tolerate it.' The defiant defence comes a little as a surprise as she has previously slammed reality shows. In 2011, after the New York Daily News asked her if the Kardashians 'empowered' women, she bluntly replied, 'They're not empowering other women', though added, 'there's no point in blaming the people who take advantage of the system without changing the system.'

Steinem was known in the 60s and 70s as the leader of the women's liberation movement and the founder of Ms. Magazine. She has spoken out on a number of gender related topics in her career including pornography, transsexualism and same-sex marriage. That she has most recently defended pregnancy stems from the barrage of vile abuse that Kim Kardashian and her curves have received from the press.
