Nasty women unite! Women voters across the nation are not accepting a Donald Trump presidency, and have something huge planned for after Inauguration Day. See what it is here!
Many angry and fearful voters around the country continue to protest after Donald Trump, 70, was elected as president. But that’s only the beginning of what they have in store as he continues to transition into the White House. Women voters are reportedly planning a massive protest the day after president-elect Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 21.
The large scale stand against the Republican is reportedly titled the “Women’s March On Washington.,” and will apparently invite women and anyone who supports women’s rights to gather at the Lincoln Memorial in D.C., and march straight up to the White House, according to Facebook. In addition to rallying in D.C., voters can also join other states participating in the march, including New York, Illinois, Georgia, and many more.
Strategies for the march have been laid out on a Facebook fan page, promoting the rally. The protest will reportedly be held all day from noon until 11p.m. that night. Word of the rally has been shared across many social media platforms. And just on Facebook alone, the page as attracted more than 100K people interested in joining the movement and has been shared 240K times. Despite the name, the organizers of the Facebook page and rally assert the idea that the protest is inclusive to all people, including men, people of color, immigrants, and the LGBTQ+ community.
The post-inauguration protest announcement comes as protests continue to erupt around the country. Angry voters have taken to the streets in New York, Washington, Oregon, and California in protest of the president-elect. Many of the protesters carry signs that reference Trump’s hateful language that he used during his controversial campaign.
In addition to voicing their opinions and distaste, others have signed a petition in hopes of getting Trump’s presidency thrown out, and get Hillary Clinton, 70, elected in his place. The Change.org petition suggests that “electors” selected by the Electoral College — whom actually make the final decision on who will be president — can overturn their original pledge to support Trump and instead vote for Hillary.
