In the Blog
Look! Resistance Works! Part II
Feministing.com has just reported a win for the feminist blogosphere. After a reader found these panties for sale at her local Walmart,
the blog banded together to have them removed. And they were successful:
“We have directed our stores to remove this merchandise from our shelves,” Linda Brown Blakely, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, told FOXNews.com Wednesday.
The undergarments had caused a stir on some blogs prior to Wednesday’s announcement. Scarlett, a reader of Feministing.com, alerted the blog to the holiday-inspired undies, which she found on a rack in the juniors department of a Wal-Mart in Cary, N.C.
Congrats go to Feministing and their readers!
