Nasty Woman t-shirt[edit]

While watching the third presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in 2016, Brinkman designed the Nasty Woman t-shirt in response to Trump's reference to Clinton as “such a nasty women.” The shirt went viral after Brinkman made it available on her Google Ghost website with proceeds pledged to Planned Parenthood.[5]
