Dunham started off her speech with the joke, “Hi, I’m Lena Dunham and according to Donald Trump, my body is probably a two,” to which Ferrera responded, “And according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.”

The award-winning producer-director called out the GOP presidential candidate and real-estate mogul Donald Trump, for his orthodox views on women’s rights.

“I’m a pro-choice, feminist, sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness. Donald and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights, and his rhetoric about women takes us back to a time when we were meant to be beautiful and silent. Meanwhile, 22 years ago, Hillary declared that women’s rights are human rights. And she made it possible for my fellow sexual assault survivors in my home state of New York to have access to safe, immediate care in any emergency room.”

America Ferrera

The Superstore actress announced that she was born to proud Honduran immigrant parents and expressed gratitude to the U.S public school system for sparking her interest in the arts. Ferrera stated, “Donald’s not making America great again. He’s making America hate again.”

“I was educated in public schools; my talents were nurtured through public arts programs, and occasionally I needed a free meal to get through the school day. Not everyone looks at the millions of young people like me, children born into struggling families, children born to immigrant parents, children who are immigrants themselves, and sees an investment. But Hillary has spent the last 30 years proving what she sees in us. Not our color, gender, or economic status, but our capacity to grow into thriving adults able to contribute great things to this country.”
