The demonstrators protesting sexual assault by Trump were holding placards that read “GOP! Hands off me!” and “Keep your laws off my body.”

Dozens of women, many of them sexual assault survivors, gathered around Donald Trump’s buildings all across the country — including downtown Chicago, Manhattan and Washington — to protest the Republican nominee’s treatment of women.

The demonstrators, who were mostly women, held placards that read “GOP! Hands off me!,” “P*****s in formation!” and “Keep your laws off my body.” The protestors ranged in age from teenagers to more than 60 years old.

Some of them brought pots and pans, which they banged in tune to chants like, “Back up! Back up! We want freedom, freedom. Tell the sexist GOP we don’t need em, need ‘em.”

Some of the rape survivors also shared their outrage at Trump’s lewd comments.

The protest was organized Tuesday in response to the 2005 leaked tape that featured the GOP presidential nominee bragging to radio host Billy Bush about how easily he can commit sexual assault — and get away with it too.

“I am a survivor of sexual assault and the idea of someone who is a sexual predator having the ability to make laws that govern my personal safety and the personal safety of my child is completely abhorrent to me. It’s not OK,” said Autumn Leonard, one of the protesters.

Trump has hit an all-time low with after the female demographic — and to these women, supporting him is a personal insult.

Organizer Agunda Okeyo said the protests are designed to “hold the GOP to account for the racist, sexist, and xenophobic policies that have led to the Frankenstein of Donald Trump.”
