Women boycotting Ivanka Trump’s fashion line and stores that sell it
Maybe the entire Trump family will have to change their names after the election.
…some women are turning away from Ivanka, thanks to her father’s attacks on women and women’s rights. Yahoo talked to brand and digital strategy Shannon Coulter, who recently called on Americans to boycott Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessories. The company is estimated to be worth $100 million — but not for long if these women have something to say about it…
Thanks to Trump’s sexual assault accusations, Coulter launched the hashtag #GrabYourWallet — a take on Trump’s “grab them by the p*ssy” remark as a call to action for women to “vote with their wallet.” While Ivanka recently claimed she’s “just a daughter” not a surrogate,” she’s been at her father’s side campaigning frequently. In a Cosmopolitan interview, Coulter explained that many women have given Ivanka a pass because it’s difficult to be objective about one’s parents. But when the “Access Hollywood” tape came out, all bets were off. “I think [women] took particular offense,” Coulter said, “as I did, to the fact that Ivanka tries to make feminism a part of her brand but is standing by, as an official campaign surrogate, a guy who is an alleged serial sexual assaulter of women. The disconnect was too big. And they were ready to speak up about it and flex their consumer power about it.”
