The Washington Post has a free magazine for DC commuters called the Express. They recently did a cover story about a ‘Women’s March’ planned for inauguration day but there was a problem with the cover image.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Washington Post Express Puts Male Symbol on Women’s Inauguration March Cover
The Washington Post Express, a free daily tabloid given to mass transit passengers in D.C., drew ire on Thursday with its cover about the Women’s March on Washington that mistakenly featured the male gender symbol.
Not long after the cover was tweeted from the Express account, the publication came under fire by social media users for the offensive mistake. The Express did not outright apologize for the cover but tweeted that it was “embarrassed.”
The tabloid later tweeted what the cover should have looked like, featuring the correct gender symbol.
The Women’s March on Washington will take place Jan. 21, the day after Donald Trump is sworn into office as the 45th president of the United States.
This is the original cover:
