More than two hundred women gathered outside Trump Tower on 5th Avenue in New York to protest “Cheeto Voldemort”; otherwise known as Donald Trump.
Survivors of sexual assault and supporters dressed in black protested alongside immigrants and women of color; marching up and down the sidewalk outside Trump’s condo in Manhattan.
In Chicago and Philadelphia more women gathered to protest Trump’s sexual assault confession on Bill Bush’s Access Hollywood bus. The demonstrators brought signs saying: “Real men get consent”and “Pussy grabs back”.
Another sign read: “Keep your tiny hands to yourself.”
Other women chanted “Trump thinks he runs this town / Pussy came to shut it down” while holding signs saying: “Don’t tread on my pussy” and “Grab my pussy, muthaf-cker I dare you.”
The #GOPHandsOffMe protests are scheduled for cities all across the country; places such as Washington, D.C.; Denver; Philadelphia; Seattle; Miami and Las Vegas.
Kristin Marks, co-creator of the protest outside Trump Tower, told the media : “Just the fact that he’s normalizing rape culture… is not cool with us.”
Mark continued: “This isn’t just like another ‘gate’ or a scandal. This is a presidential nominee advocating un-consensual sexual contact, in public to other people — and that’s not something that we should come to accept as part of the debate.”
