Despite a greater and greater number of sexual assault allegations emerging against Donald Trump, his daughter, Ivanka, has continued to support him.

And it’s beginning to affect her business as women from all around are boycotting her line of clothing in protest.

Whether its jewellery, perfume, clothing or accessories, a group of women are avoiding the collection themselves but also calling on stores that stock the items - such as Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s - to stop selling it.

Thanks to the long list of accusations against him, and the infamous 2005 audio tape which captured him bragging about being able to do whatever he wants to women, Trump’s poll numbers have worsened.

“If Ivanka Trump had distanced herself from the campaign I would not be boycotting her. But something changed for me when that tape was released,” media marketing specialist - and the woman behind the campaign - Shannon Coulter told the Guardian.

Coulter says that she herself was sexually harassed by Trump: “I was in an office belonging to a firm I was working for in Silicon Valley and my boss’s boss came breezing through,” she explained.

“Suddenly he came up behind me and pressed himself right up against me and said ‘Why is it you always look so good?’ He had a colleague with him and it was so humiliating.

“And when I heard Donald Trump talking on that tape, I recognised in his words the same feeling that I had that day – of being nothing more than an object. No matter how smart you are or how hard you work, they can do that to us.”

And so she has taken action and launched the hashtag #GrabYourWallet on Twitter, encouraging people to vote with their wallets.

It looks like a success so far - apparently more than a million people have viewed her posts in the last 10 days and she’s receiving hundreds of retweets.

According to an article by Forbes, Ivanka’s clothing line generated $100 million in revenue last year, so there’s plenty of cash at stake.
