Breaking the Chains: the battle to find and use my voice

As I mentioned in a previous entry, when filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered on an Amsterdam street, a message was attached to his body: Ayaan Hirsi Ali was next. This was due to a film they jointly created about the status of women in Islam (you can watch the short, but extremely interesting film here).

As a Dutch parliament member, Ali worked to secure basic human rights for female Muslim immigrants. In this presentation, she shares her journey, from a forced marriage to a new life in the West, and offers some very well thought-out remarks about Islam and its situation with regard to modernity.

Is it wrong for me to think she's kind of hot?
