The Washington Post Express Awkwardly Forgot What The Symbol For Women Is


Posted on

Like how they could possibly have gotten it so wrong.

@WaPoExpress this is what you did, isn't it?


And if there were any women in the newsroom who let this happen.

Because @WaPoExpress wants you to forget they WENT TO PRESS without a single woman in the room. #details

Maybe they used Bing?


That thing you're feeling is intense secondhand embarrassment.

@WaPoExpress uhhhh you made a little mistake there on that new cover folks #smdh


But despite the hasty edit, the incorrect version is the one that made it into the hands of commuters.

By the way, if you were wondering whether @WaPoExpress actually printed those covers, the answer is yes.

When reached for comment, the Washington Post Express directed BuzzFeed News to the correction issued on social media.
