Glamour Magazine announced its decision to rank Linda Sarsour one of its ten "2017 Women of the Year" awardees.

All of the awardees, Glamour claimed, are "game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers."

Sarsour, an Arab-American anti-Israel activist, misrepresented a Political Action Commitee (PAC) as a fund for Hurricane Harvey relief. Critics accuse her of trying to exploit the hurricane that devastated the region for political aims.

In August, she tweeted, "Donate to the Harvey Hurricane relief fund." The fund's website stated that "your donation is vital to ensuring that we have the resources we need to organize and fight for Texans devastated by Hurricane Harvey!"

She also called for jihad (Islamic holy war) against the Trump administration, later claiming that her remarks were taken out of context.

Sarsour also claimed Arab violence was a form of "non-violent resistance." In 2015, Sarsour hailed Arab rock throwers targeting Israelis, calling them “The definition of courage”.
