Is Target's 'Trophy' T-shirt demeaning toward women?
Target is facing some heat from some shoppers who said it is selling T-shirt in its juniors department emblazoned with the words “Trophy,” “Mrs.” and "This is my backstage pass."
Several women posted shots of what they say are shirt racks at the department store stocking the shirts in question.
Some critics are now slamming the tees as anti-woman. A Change.org petition called “Stop Selling Sexist ‘Trophy’ Shirt That Demeans Women” has a couple hundred signatures. But are these shirts really that big a deal?
Jen Groover, a motivational speak and author of, “What If? & Why Not,” says the tees indeed depict women negatively.
"The general use of the term ‘trophy wife’ in our society, is meant as a demeaning term toward the woman and a symbolic ‘high-five’ toward the man for scoring outside of his zone," Groover told FOX411. "I would prefer seeing more positive statements that are empowering for myself, my daughters and all women.”
But not everyone agrees.
