"Ultimately a celebration of triumph over adversity, Hirsi Ali's story tells how a bright little girl evolved out of dutiful obedience to become an outspoken, pioneering freedom fighter. As Western governments struggle to balance democratic ideals with religious pressures, no story could be timelier or more significant.--From publisher description."--From source other than the Library of Congress… (més)

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has my utmost respect for speaking out and telling the world about Islam, despite the threats she has faced her whole life and the killing of her Dutch film-making partner, Theo Van Gogh. Ayaan was born in Somalia, but her father was imprisoned or in hiding for openly opposing the Somalian leader. She and her younger sister were mistreated by everyone, including her mother and brother. Ayaan wanted to understand Islam, but there is only obedience, especially for women, and that was not in her DNA. Along with her mother, she lived in Saudi Arabia and Kenya, where she also did not fit. When she was eventually married off to a wealthy Somali businessmen in Canada, Ayaan fled from Germany during a layover, eventually crossing the border into Holland, where she applied and was granted asylum. While there, she was essentially reborn and able to obtain the education she was denied as a Muslim woman. She blossomed there, and was eventually elected to Parliament, before being politically pushed out for falsifying the facts presented in her asylum request (which she had always admitted.) A real eye-opener from a brave woman. Recommended, but not an easy read. 4.5 stars. ( )

"In Holland I have seen well-meaning, principled people blinded by multiculturalism, overwhelmed by the imperative to be sensitive and respectful of immigrant culture, while ignoring criminal abuse of women and girls." -Ayaan Hirsi Ali

This book really makes me reconsider my “live and let live” attitude to extremist religion. While my instinct is to regard them with my superior attitude of “Well, if they’re stupid enough to buy into that backward mumbo jumbo superstition, it’s because they want to live that life. What do I care?” But AHA’s position is that so many women have no recourse, even if they have the insight to question their subjugation. And that the majority have institutionalized this appalling abuse, and cannot conceive of another way. Even as we wish to remain politically correct, the brutal patriarchy and normalized mysogyny of Islam is absolute in vast parts of the world. Men there keep their power by means of obstructing female education, removing female sexuality, treating women as chattel, and repressing female individualism - as if it’s the role of women to keep their infantile men’s sexual thoughts in check. All of the advantages are for men, while the women can expect forced marriage, female genital mutilation, and physical and psychological abuse. We in the west should not turn our eyes away from the repressed in the name of multiculturalism. ( )

Few authors have risked as much to share their own story and what a courageous story it is. An important book by an eloquent, intelligent woman who has more than earned the right to be heard by people of all faiths. ( )

This is a fascinating biography of a woman's journey from poverty and oppression to freedom; from religion to enlightenment. It was instrumental in helping me find my own enlightenment. ( )

A harrowing story which is a simple biography of an exceptional person still early in her life and career. The first part was about life in Somalia (and as a refugee) in the 70s/80s, including the war against Siam Barre, rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, and in specific the unique hell of being a woman in traditional Somali society.

Then, her escape from an arranged marriage into Europe, fairly random selection of Holland as a destination, and integration into Dutch society — working, seeing other immigrants and the difficulties of integration, and how it was changing Dutch society for the worse.

The graphic description of female genital mutilation (where a certain level of mortality was expected...) and abuse (including a cracked skull) as discipline by a Koranic teacher was rather effective. I’m glad I live in a place where laws protect against such things, with the ultimate backstop being my personally owned rifles.

Finally, her rise to a public speaker on these issues, election to parliament, and multiple threats on her life, murder of one of her close friends and collaborators, and extreme security measures, followed by resettlement in the US. It is hard to understand being willing to give one’s security arrangements over entirely to a fairly incompetent seeming security apparatus (under-react and then massively over-react), but maybe that is the European way.

It is unlikely anyone would read this book without a formed opinion of Islam and the way various target societies react to mass Islamic immigration, but in the event you haven’t, this book makes a pretty strong case for individual liberty vs respecting tradition or group rituals. There are a few areas where I disagree with her, but the book does a particularly good job of presenting the case.

Incidentally, the book did a great job of convincing me of the flaws of the Dutch political system (although it got a bit better in the past couple years). — nonconfrontational consensus even in the face of obvious horrors. While I believe people should generally be free to govern themselves, that is predicated on allowing individuals to flee (although a receiving country would need to voluntarily accept them). I’d advocate for letting sane Dutch who don’t want to live in that kind of place resettle in the US.
