Everyone just about done with Full Frontal Feminism? I’ll be posting my review next week, and we’ll also be hearing from the author, Jessica Valenti of feministing.com, with an interview and possibly a guest post. While we’re waiting for that, don’t forget February’s reading selection, it’s one you won’t want to miss.
Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Raised as a Muslim fundamentalist who later lost her faith when she could no longer justify the beliefs of her religion to herself, Ayaan Hirsi Ali also lost the support of her family when she refused to enter into an arranged marraige to a cousin and, instead, fled to the Netherlands, worked as an interpreter, attended college, and ultimately became a member of the Dutch parliament. Today she lives and works in America where she requires constant security to protect her from attacks by Islamic extremists who believe that infidels, particularly those who expose and criticize Islam, should be executed. This book is her story.
