Women Band Together To Boycott Ivanka Trump’s Clothing & Accessories
The socialite and businesswoman’s clothing line is being boycotted by a growing number of women, because she continues to campaign and make excuses for her father, even after his horrendous Access Hollywood tape saying “grab them by the p*ssy” was leaked.
Instead of vehemently condemning his words, Ivanka offered up a halfhearted dismissal then praised her father for apologizing, even though his comments since then show that he is still as misogynistic as ever.
ANYWAY, perhaps if her sale numbers dip, the 34-year-old will finally see the error of her ways. (We doubt it, though).
On Twitter, a woman named Shannon Coulter has started the #grabyourwallet trend to educate people, particularly female consumers, and discourage them from buying Ivanka Trump branded clothing and accessories.
Shannon is taking it a step further and also calling for the boycott of the stores that carry the line, including Macy’s, T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s, Saks Off Fifth, DSW, and Neiman Marcus.
Updated list. Now includes Marshalls. If you’d rather not see the name “Trump” anymore while you’re shopping, call these stores. Tell them. pic.twitter.com/4xXkGcqU4X

The hashtag, started on October 11, has grown rapidly and so far, according to Shannon, received 2.2 million impressions on Twitter.
Another woman, Lindsay Ledford, has proudly lent her voice to the campaign:
“I don’t blame [Ivanka] for being supportive to her family. But the way she has positioned herself with her website, the one-stop shop for women who work and female empowerment, then acting as a surrogate for the most hateful, racist, sexist campaign ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ you can’t pick and choose like that.”
Ivanka cannot honestly claim she supports women and then continue standing by her father as he says these awful things. It doesn’t make any sense!
Will YOU be joining this boycott???
