In the wake of Trump’s election and a campaign filled with hateful rhetoric directed toward Muslims (among many other groups), there have been numerous reports of Muslim women having their head coverings snatched off by Trump supporters. Others have been threatened with violence if they don’t remove the hijab.

So some people are suggesting that, in an act of solidarity, everyone start carrying around extra scarves to give to Muslim women in case of such violence. 

It’s incredibly depressing that, by Day 6 in Trump’s America, this is what needs to be considered. Anyway, it’s nice if you want to carry a scarf. Just make sure you also step in and try to stop the harassment too.
