Remarkable book, remarkable woman. You may recognize Hirsi Ali as the woman from Somalia who was raised Muslim, escaped to Holland, was elected to Dutch Parliament, worked on a film whose director was killed and eventually fled to the USA, under bodyguard. She boldly exposes Islamic culture as “brutal, bigoted, [and] fixated on controlling women”. Hirsi Ali was subjected to female mutilation, forced into an unwanted marriage, and endured shame by her family and clan. Now an international spokesperson for the rights of Muslim women and an outspoken, pioneering freedom fighter.
