#ReadMyLips Because they are begging you to treat women like an equal

Dear Donald Trump, 

#ReadMyLips because they are begging for equality. Equality for me being a woman, Equality for all religions, Equality for everyone despite their origin. 

If we are all equal, why do we have luxury tax on feminine hygiene products? What part of "WE NEED FEMININE HYGIENE NOT WANT" is hard to understand?

Why doesn't contraception have 100% coverage but Viagra does. 

For years, women have kept their silence but it's too much to hold when the President exemplifies assault. 

When asked Justin Trudeau why needs an equal diverse cabinet, he said because it 2015. Well, its 2017 can we have the same in US of America? 

You keep saying make America great again, I say it was pretty great before you came along. So now I agree with you on one thing that we need to make America great again because currently it is a mess. More like your mess that women are paying for.


This message was posted as part of #ReadMyLips, a campaign enabling individuals to share a personal message with President Trump on what they want from him for women's health and women's rights these next 4 years.

    cris, please read TAX laws because Tax is divided on need and want based products. Need products such as basic food does not get taxed. However, want based products are taxed atleast 6.25% in most states and over 10% in Illinois. please read an article here to understand more: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/01/08/the-tampon-tax-explained/ I would like the federal government to remove any tax from feminine hygiene products the way it is removed for other need based products. Regarding equality, i think the federal law for use of bathrooms was right. I don't think it is a choice by state. It is the responsibility of the president to be fair to minorities whether the state agrees or not. If we went on majority and not basic rights ruled by the federal government, the civil rights movement would not have led to change. Viagra cures cancer in some cases? Agreed in which case it should be covered as medication. Contraception is a NEED unless you unwanted kids. Women prolife or prochoice don't want to get pregnant unless they are ready especially if they don't have the financial resources to support buying contraception let alone support a child. And women should have complete coverage and free access to contraception. It's not just good for them, their families but more importantly the kids who have a right to a great future and not be burden from the day they are born. Get your facts right before you comment in future.
