As Ivanka Trump continues to support her father, Donald Trump, and his campaign for president, she is coming under fire from angry feminists.
According to People, some female shoppers are boycotting her clothing and accessories line, called the Ivanka Trump Collection. These women are using the #grabyourwallet hashtag, which is a reference to what Trump said in the leaked 2005 video (“I like to grab them by the p***y”).
But these women aren’t just boycotting Ivanka’s clothing line… they are also refusing to shop at retailers that carry the line until her items are removed from the shelves.
A woman named Shannon Coulter started the boycott. She is a media marketing specialist. She told The Guardian, “When I heard Donald Trump talking on that tape, I recognized in his words the same feeling that I had that day – of being nothing more than an object. No matter how smart you are or how hard you work, they can do that to us.”
Coulter continued, “If Ivanka Trump had distanced herself from the campaign I would not be boycotting her. But something changed for me when that tape was released.”
According to People:
The Guardian reports that more than a million people viewed Coulter’s posts, while 50,000 have responded with support and 2,000 have said they will participate. Those already on board are boycotting retailers carrying the line, including Nordstrom, Macy’s, Amazon, Lord & Taylor, Marshalls and Zappos until merchandise is removed.
Earlier this month, Ivanka was asked about her brand’s relation to her father’s campaign. She responded, “My brand was launched far before the presidential cycle commenced and will continue long afterwards. I’ve always tried to maintain complete separation between that and the campaign. With that said, you know, one of the challenging things is just operating, living one’s life, with the intensity and the scrutiny of this process is a very hard thing actually to do.”
