Dozens of women, including sexual-assault survivors, rallied outside Trump Tower in Manhattan on Wednesday morning to protest the Republican presidential candidate.

Approximately 50 protesters were holding signs, ranging from “Pussies in formation” to large pictures of cats, as they chanted, “Trump thinks he runs this town, pussy came to shut it down,” according to The Guardian. They also chanted, “We want freedom, tell the sexist GOP, we don’t need ’em.”

The protests came less than a week after a tape emerged of a conversation Trump had with former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, in which the candidate bragged about grabbing women by their pussies. NY1 reports the protest’s organizers believe “Trump and the GOP are responsible for decades of anti-women rhetoric and stances,” and that they are calling for elected officials to withdraw their support of Trump.
