Women’s March cuts ties with Linda Sarsour and others accused of anti-Semitism
The Women’s March has cut ties with three of its inaugural board members, including Linda Sarsour, who have been dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism.
Sarsour, Bob Bland, and Tamika Mallory all stepped down from the board of the organization back in July, but they updated their website this week, according to the Washington Post.
Sarsour told the Washington Post that she is “grateful to the women who stepped up to shepherd the Women’s March,” and added that, “This is what women supporting women looks like.”
She and Mallory in particular have faced accusations of anti-Semitism, with a majority of the criticism being directed towards their relationship with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan, 86, has a long history of espousing anti-Semitic rhetoric.
