By Elizabeth Stoecker By New York magazine Editor New York City—The first time a woman has worn a Trump T-shirt is now all but a given.
As of now, it’s been worn by Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Jill Stein, and it’s happened in public, in courtrooms, and on television.
But there are still ways for women to make their voices heard on this issue, including by holding a rally.
The women of Color Coalition has just released a new report on the issue, called The Women in a T-Shirt: Voices for Change in the United States, and we spoke to women who’ve been on the frontlines and speaking out.
What is a Trump-style T-shirts?
When Trump announced that he would be running for president in 2016, it was a big deal.
But, as his supporters have proven, he didn’t actually have to do anything to be elected.
The Trump campaign promised that if he won the White House, he would take the country back to a “good old days,” and women could finally vote for him.
So many women, from the very beginning, said, “We want this, and this, so we’re going to get this.”
And so, we’re doing this work.
We are calling on the media, Congress, and every single member of Congress to take action to make sure this happens and keep women’s voices heard.
What we’re hearing from women is not only that Trump has a track record of harassing women, but that he has also shown an alarming lack of respect for the laws that are designed to protect women.
Trump has not been prosecuted for sexual harassment or assault by anyone, so, this is not an issue that is going to change anytime soon.
In fact, in a 2017 investigation by the Associated Press, a woman who accused Trump of sexual harassment was fired from her job as an attorney and refused to testify.
Trump’s misogynistic attacks on women have continued, even after he won election.
The New York Times reported on a meeting with an adviser in which Trump called a woman a “slut” and a “prostitute,” while boasting that he could get away with it because of the power of his fame.
In a 2016 interview with The New Yorker, Trump told Playboy magazine, “I’m very much into women.
And I think the women in this country are the sexiest, the sexnaest, the funniest, and most beautiful people that you could ever imagine.”
He continued: I don’t know if it’s the size of her boobs or the way she looks, but she’s got a big heart.
She’s a very smart, beautiful woman.
I have no problem with women.
I mean, that’s what women are, right?
The problem is that women don’t have the power to speak up, to say, ‘No, Donald, you’re not gonna do this,’ to get him fired.
So, the next time a white man says he loves women, and he’s a good person, he can keep that love and his fame and his wealth.
But that doesn’t mean he’s entitled to treat women the way he treats us.
What do we need to do?
Women’s organizations are pushing back against the way Trump’s misogyny is being used to silence and marginalize women, who they say are being treated unfairly.
In October, for example, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) published a report, which described Trump’s treatment of women as “deeply offensive,” and warned that it was “not just about one man, it is about all of us as a society.”
The report, entitled “A New Era for White Supremacy: A Critical Review of the 2018 U.S. Presidential Election,” called on women and girls to join forces to resist Trump’s “toxic misogyny,” and to “end this toxic moment of male supremacy.”
One of the report’s authors, Rachel Corrie, told the New York Post, “The men who have been in power for decades have never been more isolated, more isolated from the public sphere.
They have never had to face a mass uprising like this, they don’t need it.”
The NWLC is one of several women’s organizations that have called on Congress to hold hearings on the “Women in a Shirt” report, including the National Organization for Women, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Women’s Working Families Fund.
But it’s not just women who are pushing for change.
In February, the Women and Girls United for Change Coalition, which is led by Latina activist and organizer Alicia Garza, launched a petition on Change.org asking the U.K. government to take actions to ensure that “anyone who has a relationship with a Trump supporter can be protected from being harassed, victimised, or retaliated against.”
This is a critical
