This newspaper very awkwardly mixed up the symbols for 'man' and 'woman'

ON JANUARY 21ST, thousands of women are expected to descend on Washington DC for the Women’s March on Washington.

The march, which was scheduled to coincide with Donald Trump’s inauguration, will see women protest the rhetoric of the recent election campaign, which “insulted, demonised and threatened” women and other marginalised groups.

Anyone who supports women’s rights is invited to turn out and so far, over 168,000 people have confirmed their attendance on Facebook.

Today, The Washington Post Express published an article about the march, but made a very grave error

Yep, they included the man symbol

Oh God.

“Do you think anybody noticed?”


Spare a thought for the person who made this mistake, won’t you?

This afternoon, Washington Post Express apologised for the inadvertent error and posted the correct cover.
