(CBSNews.com) - Users have one option: Slap her for speaking.

Although several women's rights organizations have condemned the idea, an anti-Hillary super PAC has refused to remove "Slap Hillary" from their website, allowing individuals to virtually hit the former secretary of state with a click.

The Hillary Project released the clickable graphic earlier this week in which an animated Hillary Clinton stands outside the White House, and users can click "speak" or "slap," cueing a graphic hand to whack her across the face.

While it's their violent tact that several people have taken fault with, some also used the interactive tool as an example of GOP disconnect with gender equality.

"This ridiculous behavior is why no amount of 're-branding' is going to help Republicans win over women voters -- they just don't get it," EMILY's List Communications Director Jess McIntosh said in a statement. "Violence against women isn't a 'game.' Slapping a woman for speaking isn't actually a joke. It's just gross."

Like EMILY's List, another organization for gender equality, Ultra Violet, hascalled on House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; and Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus to speak out against "Slap Hillary."

There's no comment from those leaders, however, The Hillary Project is an independent group, not affiliated with Boehner, McConnell or the RNC.
