WOMEN'S LIBERATION: Student Group Organizes to Oppose Sexist Abercrombie & Fitch Catalogue
Gordon College students are organizing a protest and boycott of Abercrombie and Fitch after the company released its Christmas catalog entitled “Christmas and Sex.” The catalog, which contains 71 pictures of nude models, has sparked outrage throughout Gordon. “We are horrified that this type of soft pornography goes unnoticed,” says Gordon senior Jamee Borcuk. “In a subtle yet insidious way the Abercrombie and Fitch catalog condones the use of pornography which leads to the very sexual abuse we have been fighting to end.”
