Donald Trump, Protect Muslim Women

Posted by

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.
