The student government at a fancypants women’s college on Manhattan’s Upper West Side has decided to respond to Donald Trump’s presidential election victory with a safe space event at which students can sip hot chocolate and besmear “feminist coloring pages” featuring Hillary Clinton and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The ladies-only school is Barnard College, reports Campus Reform.

A single year of tuition, fees and room and board at Barnard currently costs $65,992. That’s over $10,000 more than the median annual household income in the United States.

The event, entitled “Cocoa + Coloring with RBG” is scheduled for Wednesday, according to a Barnard student government Facebook page.

“The SGA Campus Life Committee and the American Association of University Women are coming together to bring you a space to destress in light of the tumultuous election season,” the event announcement explains. “Feminist coloring pages (think RBG, Hillz, Oprah, Rosie the Riveter, etc), hot chocolate, and snacks will be provided…what more could you want?! Hope to see you there & stay well.” (There’s a heart icon at the end.)

A comment under the announcement suggests that the “feminist coloring pages” will be similar to these images:

The locale of Wednesday’s “feminist coloring pages” event is the Barnard Social Justice Lounge.

At some point in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday, someone apparently turned off the Facebook embedding options for the event.

In the immediate aftermath of Trump’s surprising victory last Tuesday, some students at the all-female haven started a petition late Tuesday night to cancel classes the following day. (RELATED: NO SAFE SPACE: The Daily Caller’s YUGE Roundup Of Campus Freakouts After Trump’s Victory)

Last academic year, concerned ladies at Barnard dedicated a whole wall of the student center to an art installation to the legitimacy and seriousness of trigger warnings.

“People asking for trigger warnings are the opposite of ‘coddled,'” read one note in the crowdsourced installation. “Trigger warnings are REAL and should be RESPECTED!” read another. (RELATED: Sheltered Rich Girls Get The Vapors And Demand Trigger Warnings About The Real World)

At commencement in 2015, Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told the graduating girls of Barnard that women continue to suffer from grave inequality in the United States. Afghanistan is superior to the United States in at least one way in terms of women’s equality, Power pontificated, because women hold 28 percent of the seats in Afghanistan’s parliament.
