Conservative women are condemning Lands’ End’s spring catalog for featuring an Easter egg hunt — and a lengthy interview with abortion radical Gloria Steinem.
“This profile on Gloria Steinem — conducted by Lands’ End CEO Federica Marchionni, no less — is revolting,” Media Research Center reporter Katie Yoder told The Stream. “A feminist who adores abortion and hates religion doesn’t deserve one inch in a catalog that also celebrates Easter and family.”
At issue is the cover of the spring issue of Lands’ End, a leading clothing retailer that was purchased by Sears for $1.9 billion in 2002, but valued last summer at $779 million, according to a Fortune profile of the newly-independent company. It is especially known for its school uniforms, and last year expanded its clothes for mothers of children who wear its brand clothing.
Marchionni has been CEO for a few weeks more than a year, with a goal of turning around the company’s direction.
