The Norfolk Forum Presents: Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Tuesday, January 20, 2015

In advance of her Tuesday, February 3 Norfolk Forum appearance, we're joined by women's rights activist, writer and politician, Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  She was born in Mogadishu, Somalia in 1969, and as a young child, she was subjected to female genital mutilation. Later, she escaped an arranged marriage to a distant uncle by feeling to the Netherlands, where she was granted asylum and went on to become an elected member of the Dutch parliament.  Her most recent research focuses on the complex and tumultuous relationship between the West and Islam.
