Wal-mart Pulls "Someday A Woman Will Be President" T-Shirt

Citing its offensiveness to some shoppers, a Wal-mart store close to Miami stopped selling a t-shirt which proclaimed, "Someday A Woman Will Be President." The store had sold roughly two-thirds of its stock of 204 shirts, but decided to stop selling them when the store received a complaint from one customer. A buyer of women's clothes for the national office, Sharon Higginbotham, told the t-shirt's designer, Ann Moliver Ruben, that the store would not carry the shirt nationwide because its message, "goes against Wal-Mart's family values."
