DAILYKENN.com --The founder of a movement that pretends to represent all women is nonplussed that her organization is racist, anti-semitic, and homophobic.
Teresa Shook hopes to steer The Woman's March in a more tolerant direction by requesting the resignation of Linda Sarsour and three other key leaders.

Teresa Shook, the woman who first suggested a women's march following the inauguration of President Trump, is calling on four of the group's leaders to step down, arguing they have steered the movement from its correct course.
Shook specifically called out Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland and Carmen Perez of Women's March, Inc., for allowing "anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric" to become a part of the platform.
"[My] original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world," Shook wrote on Facebook.
"I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people."
"Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course," she continued. "I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not."
She called on all four to step down and to let other members of the movement take their place.
