Uppity Women #17

I really don't think that there are words enough to describe my admiration for Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Her dispassionate (especially given her personal experience) rhetoric can totally dismantle any argument for supporting Islamic culture's treatment of women. The epitome of understated, directed and firmly expressed intelligence, she reduces even the ever self-aggrandizing and bitterly mocking Bill Maher to listening silently when she speaks. She is the face of undaunted courage, of reason and of women's rights to me. Read her books, surf the resources of her foundation

She is a true Amazon among women.

  1. Indeed, more Ayaan would make the world a saner, safer, place.
