A national women’s advocacy group will fly a plane over Iowa City Saturday with the message “Trump Says Women R Pigs. Disagree? Vote.”

UltraViolet Action is commissioning five planes to fly over college football stadiums in swing states “highlighting Donald Trump’s long record of misogyny and urging young people to vote,” the group said announced Friday.

A plane will fly over Kinnick Stadium between 8:30-10 a.m. Saturday, before the University of Iowa’s 11 a.m. Homecoming game against Northwestern University.

Other planes will fly over the Wisconsin vs. Michigan game in Ann Arbor, Mich; Rutgers vs. Ohio State game in Columbus, Ohio; Southern Methodist University vs. Temple game in Philadelphia; and the Virginia vs. Duke game in Durham, N.C.
