Donald Trump Really, REALLY Wants Women To Know How Much He Doesn’t Care About Them

For Immediate Release: 08.17.16

Washington, DC –– Today, the Trump campaign announced that it was promoting Kellyanne Conway — a Republican strategist with a long and disgraceful track record of bashing feminism, opposing women’s access to health care, and even defending Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin — to be Trump’s campaign manager.


Quote from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:


“Donald Trump’s decision to choose an anti-abortion extremist who defended Todd ‘Legitimate Rape’ Akin in charge of his campaign really reinforces that he doesn’t respect, understand, or care about women. Donald Trump’s anti-woman message is part of why he’s facing a historic gender gap this election. Trump refuses to stand with women, and he’s going to find out in November just how much women refuse to stand with him.”
