Hillary Clinton Promotes "Nasty Woman" Tee in Support of Planned Parenthood
Original "nasty woman" Hillary Clinton is continuing to advocate for Planned Parenthood.
On Tuesday, the former secretary of state took to Twitter to ask her 16.8 million followers to support late-night host Samantha Bee's latest fundraiser to benefit the women's health-care organization. She tweeted a photo of herself holding up a black tee, emblazoned with the words "Nasty Woman" in white font, which is available to purchase on the TBS e-comm site. The T-shirt retails for $25 and every one sold benefits Planned Parenthood.
"By getting this exclusive 'Nasty Woman' shirt, you’re joining Samantha Bee and countless other smart, fearless women and men in supporting Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County, standing up for women's (aka, human) rights and helping to pave the way for a brighter future," reads the description on the site.
Clinton has been a longtime supporter of Planned Parenthood. In May, she attended the group's 100th-anniversary gala in New York City, where she gave an impassioned speech.
"Protecting access to the full range of reproductive health care. It is a health issue, of course, it is a core economic issue. Women in every corner of our country understand that intimately. And anyone who wants to lead should also understand that fundamentally, this is an issue of morality," she said while accepting the Champion of the Century Award. "I wish it were common ground, but I know for sure it is higher ground. And I believe, as you do, that trusting and valuing women is the right and moral position to take."
Ever since Clinton was called a "nasty woman" by Donald Trump during the final presidential debate last October, a number of retailers have created pins, pendants and tees bearing the popular phrase — with many pledging a portion of proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
