Donald Trump is no stranger to controversy on the campaign trail. This week, he accused opponent Hillary Clinton of using her gender--her "woman card"--to her advantage. "You know the only thing she’s got is the woman card,” he said on Fox and Friends. “That’s all she’s got, and it is pandering. It’s a weak card in her hands. In another person’s hands it could be a powerful card. I’d love to see a woman President, but she’s the wrong person.” Hillary didn't let him get away with it. "The other day, Mr. Trump accused me, of playing the, quote, ‘woman card,’” she said in Philadelphia. “Well, if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.”
The idea of a so-called woman card did not sit well with Twitter. Women and men blasted the notion that sexism doesn't exist. Some even tabulated the "benefits" of being a card-carrying member: being paid less than men for doing the same job, being judged on appearance, the price of tampons, etc.
"Does the #womancard work like a loyalty program where you get to redeem points?" asked one fan. "I've got 9 stamps on my #WomanCard! One more and I get yet another rape threat! #blessed," said another. "I Tried To Play My #WomanCard and All I Got Was This Lousy Sense That Misogyny Is Alive And Well."
A mock up of a woman card is now being circulated online. The faux plastic card has the tagline, "What's good for women is good for America."
