Can Donald Trump protect Muslim women? Since his election there has been an alarming increase in violence and threats against Muslims in this country, and it seems like a majority of the targets are female. In New York, Muslim women wearing hijabs have been the target of multiple incidents. A Muslim Metropolitan Transit Authority worker was followed by a man who insulted her then shoved her to the ground. In another incident a man yelled at a Muslim female police officer, telling her to go back to her country, then shoved her son. The New York Times is keeping track of these incidents with a new feature that is ominously, though aptly, titled “This Week in Hate.” Meanwhile, I hope Americans will rise up to confront this hate.
