On Thursday, President Donald Trump visited Warsaw, Poland before heading to Germany to meet with world leaders at the G20 summit. He was met by a crowd of supporters and a handful of protesters dressed as handmaids.
Women in long red robes and white bonnets ― a nod to the outfits worn by the titular handmaids in Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale ― have become an increasingly common sight over the past few months. From Texas to California and even Washington, DC, women have dressed as handmaids to protest the constant rollbacks on women’s reproductive rights and health care coverage from the Trump administration.
The Polish protest took place in Krasinskich Square where many Trump supporters had gathered to greet the U.S. president. A large group of people also showed up to protest President Trump’s visit, with most of the protestors dressed in plain clothes. Some were holding signs that read “Dumb Trump” and “Trump not welcome!”
From the photos circulating on Twitter, it appears that about a dozen women arrived at the protest dressed as handmaids. At least one man was dressed as a handmaid as well (far right in the photo below).
