Land’s End clothing quickly withdraws glowing tribute to pro-abortion icon Gloria Steinem


This photo spread interview with Gloria Steinem spurred backlash

In its corporate apology issued Wednesday, Land’s End wrote

“We thought it was a good idea and we heard from our customers that, for different reasons, it wasn’t.”

The Dodgeville, Wisconsin-based retailer of traditional clothing’s “good idea” was to include an interview with and photos of pro-abortion icon Gloria Steinem in its spring catalogue to kick off the Lands’ End “Legend Series” on “individuals who have made a difference in both their respective industries and the world at large.” The Steinem interview was conducted by Company CEO Federica Marchionni.

The backpeddling was furious as irate customers took to the company’s Facebook page to blast the decision. The interview was pulled yesterday with Land’s End saying it “sincerely apologize[d]. Our goal was to feature individuals with different interests and backgrounds that have made a difference for our new Legends Series, not to take any political or religious stance.”
