Walking past the Women's Club of Evanston I was on my way to Islamic services with a head scarf on when I was harassed by two painters speaking spanish from their ladders.

The harrassent consisted of bickering in their language and bending and swaying enough to cause myself and others to notice and look up at their pointing and leering at me.

I turned around once I crossed the street and they were still leering. I resent how I intentionally where a headscarf as a sign of modesty but these clowns are so ignorant they find it sexy and feel the need to harass it. I have to point out on this hot, hot day, many non brown women were sailing past and not harassed. As a brown skin minority it just isn't fair that I am singled out this way.
