From The Los Angeles Times:

One woman is a decorated officer of the New York Police Department, commended two years ago for running into a burning building to save a baby.

Another is a 45-year-old employee of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority who was commuting to work on the subway wearing her uniform.

Yet another, 18 years old, is a business major who was on the subway on her way home from college one evening last week.

They are among a rising number of Muslim women who say they have been assaulted in recent days in New York, renowned as the melting pot of America, and until recently vaunted as one of the most immigrant-friendly places in the world.”
