Women's rights group to fly anti-Trump plane banners over 5 college football games Saturday
Saturday, college football fans at five separate games will see anti-Trump plane banners flying over their tailgate parties.
Friday afternoon, a women's rights group named UltraViolet Action dropped a press release regarding a campaign that will run Saturday ahead of five separate college football games. The group, which is anti-Donald Trump, will fly planes with banners above five contests – Wisconsin vs. Michigan in Ann Arbor, Rutgers vs. Ohio State in Columbus, Northwestern vs. Iowa in Iowa City, SMU vs. Temple in Philadelphia and Virginia vs. Duke in Durham.
The planes will carry banners reading: "Trump Says Women R Pigs. Disagree? Vote."
Fans will see the banners up until an hour before game time. Here's more:
This Saturday, UltraViolet Action, a national women's advocacy organization, has commissioned five airplanes to fly over college football stadiums in key swing states highlighting Donald Trump's long record of misogyny and urging young people to vote. The planes will fly over the Wisconsin v. Michigan game in Ann Arbor, the Rutgers v. Ohio State game in Columbus, the Northwestern v. Iowa game in Iowa City, the SMU v. Temple game in Philadelphia and the Virginia v. Duke game in Durham.
The group also issued a statement on its anti-Trump stance.
"Donald Trump is a sexist whose toxic misogynistic rhetoric has no place in our political system – let alone in the White House. Not only does he publicly insult women, he actually brags about it – and this should tell every voter in the country all they need to know about Donald Trump and how he would govern. Trump's anti-woman history is so long that we couldn't even fit a small percentage of it onto these planes," explained Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet Action. "With the first female major party candidate in history going up against the most sexist, bigoted and unqualified candidate in modern history – it is up to voters, especially young people in key swing states to register to vote and make sure that this person never makes it to the White House."
Here's more about UltraViolet, via its website:
UltraViolet is a powerful and rapidly growing community of people from all walks of life mobilized to fight sexism and expand women's rights, from politics and government to media and pop culture.
It should be an interesting day for fans tailgating ahead of their respective contests.
