Topshop dismantles feminism pop-up
Topshop removed an in-store pop-up in London used to promote feminism with publisher Penguin after 20 minutes. Topshop said its decision was from "a production and creative standpoint". The book, which brings together ideas on feminism from 50 women, was curated by author Scarlett Curtis, daughter of director Richard Curtis. "We are sorry - this in no way reflects our stance on feminism. We continue to fully support the sentiment of the book, Scarlett Curtis, feminism and equality." Naomi Colthurst, a commissioning editor at Penguin, tweeted the decision by Topshop was "Proof, if proof were needed, about how much work is still needed to make feminism accessible for everyone".
