Ivanka Trump is facing backlash from women who are furious due to her continued support of her father, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

 

The nominee’s daughter has been the subject of a boycott, created by women disgusted by Donald Trump’s recent remarks against women.

 

Using the hashtag #GrabYourWallet, women across the country are urging one another to write letters and make calls to rally against retailers that currently carry Trump brands.

 

Thousands have taken to social media to encourage the boycott. An open letter to retailer Nordstrom went viral, with the author pleading with the store to drop Ivanka Trump products so she can shop with “good conscience” again.

 

Nordstrom is only one of the many stores to come under scrutiny in light of Trump’s remarks. According to Cosmopolitan magazine, other retailers, including T.J Maxx, Amazon, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s have been contacted by angry shoppers, with multiple requests to remove the family’s merchandise.

 

This is not the first time that the actions of her father have threatened Ivanka Trump’s success. Earlier in his campaign, Donald Trump’s comments regarding China and its economic effect on the United States caused his daughter’s products to be pulled from many websites, citing the products bared the label “Made in China.”

 

“Well, the beauty of America is people can do what they like, but I prefer to talk to the millions, tens of millions of American women who are inspired by the brand and the message I’ve created,” said Ivanka Trump in response to the criticism in an interview on Good Morning America. “I never politicized that message…people who are seeking to politicize it because they may disagree with the politics of my father, there’s nothing I can do to change that.”

 

Despite her current standing, many still consider Ivanka Trump to be one of her father’s only saving graces to appeal to women.

 

The Ivanka Trump brand and website aim to be “the ultimate destination for #WomenWhoWork, with content designed to inspire and empower women working, at all aspects of their lives.”zz
