by Ayan Hirsi Ali

Judy Stanton: I've read several novels about the plight of Muslim women, but none as powerful as Ayan Hirsi Ali s Infidel. Her story starts off shockingly, and continues to pack powerful images of the women's place as a Muslim living in Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and Kenya. Despite the brutal treatment she endures, her movement away from the Islamic faith happens very gradually over time. Her story is an amazing one, leaving the reader wanting to know more current information on her status. In Holland, and in Western society, she raises the question of how far religious tolerance should go when the tenets of the faith contrast dramatically with societal values. Her story, which touches on her education, sex, career, faith, family and friendships is not to be missed.
