NOW Protests Trump and Asks GOP: Is it Trump or Women?
On October 12th 2016, the National Organization for Women New York stood with our members and allies from across the city to reject Donald Trump for diminishing the seriousness of sexual assault; for his long record of victim-blaming and woman-hating rhetoric; and to unite women and men to say This Stops NOW. It’s time to Take Rape Seriously.
Our President, Sonia Ossorio: “This is a watershed moment. Donald Trump may think it’s just ‘locker room’ talk, but all women have experienced sexist comments, sexual harassment, or even sexual assault. Through his outright misogyny, Trump has inadvertently shined a spotlight on rape culture, and women and men are uniting to speak up with their voices and, more importantly, with their votes.”
This Stops NOW: What Donald Trump said is not just “talk.” What he described is sexual assault and what he defined is rape culture.
This Stops NOW: Donald Trump’s comments reflect his values and those laid out by his campaign, whether it’s his view of sexual assault in the military, his campaign’s victim-blaming comments about rape, or his long and well-documented history of misogyny.
This Stops NOW: Women and men are standing together, because the movement to end sexual assault and shut down rape culture goes way beyond Donald Trump.
