(You may recall the news chyron: “Trump in 2005 Audio: ‘You Can Do Anything’ to Women When You’re Famous.”) In honor of the anniversary, a women’s advocacy group called UltraViolet will be projecting the Access Hollywood footage onto a giant screen on Constitution Avenue, between the White House and the National Mall, on a loop from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m today.
Betsy DeVos Rescinds Key Obama-Era Policy On Campus Sexual Assault
DeVos is ignoring the “terrifying reality” that 1 in 4 women are sexually assaulted while on campus, according to Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of the national women’s advocacy group UltraViolet.
“Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump are more concerned with protecting the rights of predators and abusers over the rights of survivors of sexual assault,” Chaudhary said in a statement. “Sadly, given President Trump’s history of bragging about sexual assault, this isn’t that surprising.”
‘Trump is racist, McConnell is his enabler,’ Louisville women’s group protests
“The President of the United States is a white supremacist sympathizer, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has only enabled this terrifying reality,” Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet, said in a statement. “We demand that McConnell say more than just that Nazis are bad – he must take real action to hold President Trump accountable for sympathizing with neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville.”
These Are the Women Who Spent Months Fighting the GOP’s Health Care Bill
As a result, Gregg has taken a more proactive approach to the bill, organizing rallies in Portland and hosting Women Resist house parties on behalf of the women’s advocacy group UltraViolet—an organization that, according to cofounder Nita Chaudhary, pooled support from its community of 1.3 million women (and men) to host rallies on Capitol Hill, buy anti-BCRA ad space on billboards and in newspapers, and even fly planes with banners urging on-the-fence senators to vote no.
Some Women’s Golf Fans Are Teed Off To See Major Tourney At Trump Course
“Holding the tournament on this course sends the exact wrong message,” says Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet, a group that advocates for women’s rights. It’s been pushing the USGA for months to move this tournament to another course. UltraViolet even hired a plane to fly above the U.S. Open men’s championship in Wisconsin last month pulling a banner that urged the USGA to “take a mulligan, dump Trump.”
“They’re giving millions in revenue, free advertising and branding, to his platform and policies,” Thomas said, “which repeatedly degrade women, and encourage hate and division.”
