The Same Drugs: Ayaan Hirsi Ali on modern feminism and her new book, Prey

In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Born in Somalia, Ayaan was subjected to FGM (female genital mutilation) as a child, then forced marriage, at which point she fled to Holland and sought political asylum. There, she worked her way up from being a janitor to serving as an elected member of the Dutch parliament, where she campaigned to raise awareness of violence against women, honor killings and FGM. In 2004, Theo van Gogh, the director of Ayaan's short film, "Submission," about the oppression of women under Islam, was murdered by an Islamic extremist. The assassin left a death threat for Ayaan pinned to Van Gogh's chest. Her new book, "Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the Erosion of Women’s  Rights," addresses the undermining of women’s rights in Europe in the wake of mass migration.
