Donald Trump cares about appearances.
On Thursday, a report was released by unnamed sources that instructed Trump male staffers to wear ties, and women to “dress like women.”
It makes sense for men to look professional at The White House (so can someone explain why Steve Bannon is always wearing khakis?), but what does “dress like women” even mean?
The report published on Axios stated that “Even if you’re in jeans, you need to look neat and orderly.” It went on to say that women who “worked in Trump’s campaign field offices — folks who spend more time knocking on doors than attending glitzy events — felt pressure to wear dresses to impress Trump.”
When people on social media heard that sexist statement, they really let Trump have it.
Women all over the country are taking back the phrase with the hashtag #DressLikeAWoman to prove no dress needed when you’re saving Mother Earth.

And #sorrynotsorry, but we don’t have time for makeup when we’re busy fighting a war.

And no dress is needed when you’re busy serving the public.

It’s also not practical to wear a dress when you need easy access to feed your child while simultaneously protecting the country.

Even badass California Senator Kamala Harris says this what professionalism looks like when you’re fighting for justice.

Dressing like a woman means wearing whatever the hell you want!
