#GOPHandsOffMe Protesters Get Explicit To Make A Point
Women and men gathered near Trump Tower in Chicago to protest "blatant misogyny" with some very explicit messaging of their own.By Christian Bryant, Ben Schamisso | October 18, 2016
Women and men gathered in the shadow of Chicago's Trump International Hotel and Tower on Tuesday morning to protest against what they described as "blatant misogyny" and "the RNC's war on women." The demonstrators organized under the hashtag #GOPHandsOffMe in reference to comments made by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Many of the demonstrators held explicit signs referencing women's genitalia: "This Vulva Votes," "My Neck, My Back, My P---- Will Grab Back," and "Hands Off Our C---ry." We spoke to a few of the demonstrators who said the vulgar messaging was purposeful in bringing attention to their cause.
