Its no shock that some people are outraged by the presidential election and demonstrators have been protesting. Many females are against Trump and are expressing their feelings.
Two women stormed into Trumps midtown Manhattan polling place in New York to protest …
and to send a striking message, they were topless.
28 year old Tiffany Robson and 30 year old Neda Topaloski went into the public school gymnasium shirtless.
They wrote on their bare chest, “Grab your balls! Out of our polls!”
Their demonstration lasted for about 30 seconds before the secret service and police stopped them. Now, its not illegal for women to be topless in New York but it is illegal to be electioneering within 100 feet of a polling station. Both of them were escorted out and arrested.
These female demonstrators said they were part of an international feminist group called FEMEN, which began in the Ukraine. Their home base is in Paris. This group is known for writing on their bodies while topless to protest against sexual exploitation, dictatorship and religion.
Topaloski told the Daily News that “we use our bodies to express our ideas.”
Also, its not the first time women have taken their clothes off to protest Trump’s misogynistic remarks – In July 100 volunteers agreed to take part in a nude female protest at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. 1,500 women volunteered to take part in the protest, with many citing feminist reasons as their motivation.
We will surely be seeing many more protests as people continue to their outrage during this tumultuous time for the United States of America.
