Gloria Steinem must read Korrektiv

She’s calling for a TV boycott of NBC’s new show, The Playboy Club:

Steinem, 77, said on Friday that it was important to reject the TV series, despite the fact that it is set 40 years ago.
“It normalizes a passive dominant idea of gender. So it normalizes prostitution and male dominance…I just know that over the years, women have called me and told me horror stories of what they experienced at the Playboy Club and at the Playboy Mansion,” she said.

Also:

“When I was working there and writing the expose, one of the things they had to change because of my expose was that they required all the Bunnies, who were just waitresses, to have an internal exam and a test for venereal disease,” she said.

    I’m shocked, shocked to find that there is the false glamourization of sex going on here!

    ‘Pan-Am’ and ‘Playboy Club’ began
    In nineteen sixty-three
    (Though they both sound late to me)
    Between Don’s ad for the London Fog man
    And the birth of SCDP.
