More heroism from the most heroic woman in Europe (and maybe the world), Ayaan Hirsi Ali. “Dutch women’s rights activist says Islam dangerous to women,” from AP, with thanks to Nicolei and RB:
STRASBOURG, France – Dutch politician and women’s rights
activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali on Tuesday said Islam was unfriendly to women and urged Europe not to tolerate religious violence.
“Muslim religion is many things but it’s certainly not friendly to women,” she said at the European Parliament, warning the West that it “shouldn’t indulge in and buy fallacies from Muslims.”
Hirsi Ali said violence is the most important obstacle to liberating women and must be eradicated through policies such as positive discrimination and education campaigns.
She also warned domestic violence is on the rise in Europe and proposed setting up a European court and an attorney general to deal with domestic violence cases.
She suggested women should actively fight for their rights and stop being “their own worst enemies.”
“Women conceive and give birth to sons, but they don’t commit them to the noble cause of defending gender equality,” she told a seminar on combating violence against women. “The problem is the inability of women to draw up a plan on how to help women.”
