New Barbie Is Modelled After American Olympian Who Wears a Hijab
Christine Hauser

There was a range of reactions to the new doll online, and Ms. Muhammad said she had braced for a backlash. “As a public figure who is Muslim I am very accustomed to trolling — that is a part of my life,” she said. “But it is still very shocking to me to read the very negative comments about dolls. We are still in a moment where we are unearthing this bigoted America that we all hoped and prayed did not exist.”...

I thought I’d begin by telling you about a colleague who had to quit her job because she was no longer willing to submit to the unwanted advances of her employer – be it pats on the shoulder, accidental brushes of the arm and not-so-accidental palm resting on the small of her back....
