Linda Sarsour, the Pro-Palestinian activist who helped spearhead the Women’s March in Washington earlier this year, allegedly enabled the sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for her, according to a report Sunday night.
Allegations of groping and unwanted touching were brought to the attention of Sarsour during her time as executive director of the Arab American Association, The Daily Caller reported.
Asmi Fathelbab told the website Sarsour attacked her for bringing the allegations, often threatening and body-shaming her, because the accused was a “good Muslim” who was “always at the mosque,” The Daily Caller reported.
“She oversaw an environment unsafe and abusive to women,” Fathelbab, a former employee at the Arab American Association, told The Daily Caller. “Women who put [Sarsour] on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us.” . . .
Fathelbab told The Daily Caller that Sarsour threatened legal and professional damage if she went public with the sexual assault claims. (Read more from “Pro-Palestinian Activist, Women’s March Organizer Accused of Enabling Sexual Assault, Harassment in Workplace” HERE)
