Recently we learned Walgreens has decided to follow in Target’s misguided footsteps by letting men enter the women’s restrooms in its stores.
Last week the American Family Association unveiled a petition urging Walgreens to reconsider. So far more than 84,300 people have signed it.
Walgreens’ new policy welcomes men into women’s restrooms
In a shocking policy announcement, Walgreens has now directed its stores to allow men full and unrestricted access to women’s restrooms in all of its 8,100 stores.
On Nov. 17, 2017, Walgreens distributed this memo stating, “All individuals have a right to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual’s gender identity, regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth.”
The policy came as the result of being pressured by the ACLU of Southern California.
Since a similar public policy was announced by Target Stores, Inc. two years ago, dozens of women and children have been victimized by male predators inside Target stores.
Walgreens’ new policy could potentially result in female customers becoming victims of voyeurism, sexual assault and physical attack.
1. Sign our petition urging Walgreens to immediately reverse its dangerous policy that allows men unrestricted access into women’s restrooms.
