It would appear that the anti-Semitism of the Women’s March’s leadership has finally caught up with them, as the founder of the Women’s March is now demanding many of the well-known names who chair it now step down from their positions.
Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez are some of the most famous activists of today thanks to their leadership within the Women’s March, a movement that sprung up shortly after Donald Trump became President.
On Monday, however, the founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, publicly called for the women and Bob Bland to step down from their leadership positions due to their continued espousal racist and anti-Semitic views, and continued friendships with anti-Semitic figures.
From her Facebook page:
“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).
