Moore criticizes Trump for his attitude toward women

U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore today slammed GOP nominee Donald Trump’s language toward women.

“Pigs, dogs, disgusting?” the Milwaukee Democrat said during her speech at the Democratic National Convention. “Too many women know where this toxic language leads. Too many women have experienced sexual violence, and I’m one of them.”

Moore, who in 2012 recounted her experience with sexual assault, said, “we are not victims.”

“We are survivors,” she said. “We have been bullied. We’ve been beaten. We’ve been berated. We’ve been told to sit down and to shut up. Well, my voice matters and I will not shut up. Our voices matter, and we will not shut up.”

Moore credited Dem presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her “battle scars” fighting for women, whether through pushing for family leave policies or expansions of health care.

Clinton, Moore said, has been “fighting for us each and every day.”

“I trust her because at each and every opportunity, she has been a voice for the underrepresented and the unprotected,” she said. “And as president, she will keep fighting for all of us.”

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin will speak later this evening along with other Dem women in the Senate.
