Washington, DC –– Donald Trump’s new campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway — who worked for and defended Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin — is supposedly going to help Trump try to close the gaping gender gap he’s facing this November. But Conway fits a dangerous Trump campaign pattern of not understanding or caring about the struggles, discrimination, and even sexual violence that women face every day in this country. And Trump's policies would harm, not empower, women.

CONWAY: If we were physiologically — not mentally, emotionally, professionally — equal to men, if we were physiologically as strong as men, rape would not exist. You would be able to defend yourself and fight him off.

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


“Women need a president who will fight for them, their families, and their lives — and that isn’t Donald Trump. He doesn't understand or care about women and neither do the people he chooses to advise him. They blame women for the struggles they face, or even deny those struggles exist at all. Trump’s campaign is racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and toxic — and Americans must reject him and what he stands for this November.”


Donald Trump and his advisers’ dangerous anti-woman pattern


  • Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick, Mike Pence, tried to redefine rape when he was in Congress in order to make it harder for women to obtain safe, legal abortions.

  • Donald Trump has defended his friend and former Fox News head Roger Ailes against allegations of sexual harassment from more than 20 women.

  • Trump’s solution for women who are sexually harassed on the job is to look for “a better alternative” — but if they can’t find one, as is often the case, they should just stay where they are.

  • Trump’s “campaign CEO” Steve Bannon was once sued for mistreating and then firing an employee for having a baby, was accused in a separate lawsuit of sexual harassment, and, just like Trump himself, Bannon has used disgusting slurs to insult women.
