40 badass times Donald Trump was asked #CanYouHearUsNow

Mic drop.

After the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Muslim women to “tweet about who they are and how they speak out,” Twitter exploded with the hashtag #CanYouHearUsNow. Muslim women and allies of all kinds spoke out on who they are and what they stand for – standing up in the face of Trump’s bigoted remarks that the mother of a fallen soldier may have been silent on stage at the Democratic National Convention because she “wasn’t allowed” to speak.

While most were in support of the hashtag, some spoke out on Twitter around the respectability politics that the hashtag fed into – a commentary important to pay attention to as well. Just like Muslim women aren’t homogenous, neither are their opinions.

In the meantime, though, here’s a celebration of 40 people who spoke out against Trump’s bigoted speech.
