Few authors have risked as much to share their own story and what a courageous story it is. An important book by an eloquent, intelligent woman who has more than earned the right to be heard by people of all faiths. ( )

This is a fascinating biography of a woman's journey from poverty and oppression to freedom; from religion to enlightenment. It was instrumental in helping me find my own enlightenment. ( )

A harrowing story which is a simple biography of an exceptional person still early in her life and career. The first part was about life in Somalia (and as a refugee) in the 70s/80s, including the war against Siam Barre, rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, and in specific the unique hell of being a woman in traditional Somali society.

Then, her escape from an arranged marriage into Europe, fairly random selection of Holland as a destination, and integration into Dutch society — working, seeing other immigrants and the difficulties of integration, and how it was changing Dutch society for the worse.

The graphic description of female genital mutilation (where a certain level of mortality was expected...) and abuse (including a cracked skull) as discipline by a Koranic teacher was rather effective. I’m glad I live in a place where laws protect against such things, with the ultimate backstop being my personally owned rifles.

Finally, her rise to a public speaker on these issues, election to parliament, and multiple threats on her life, murder of one of her close friends and collaborators, and extreme security measures, followed by resettlement in the US. It is hard to understand being willing to give one’s security arrangements over entirely to a fairly incompetent seeming security apparatus (under-react and then massively over-react), but maybe that is the European way.

It is unlikely anyone would read this book without a formed opinion of Islam and the way various target societies react to mass Islamic immigration, but in the event you haven’t, this book makes a pretty strong case for individual liberty vs respecting tradition or group rituals. There are a few areas where I disagree with her, but the book does a particularly good job of presenting the case.

Incidentally, the book did a great job of convincing me of the flaws of the Dutch political system (although it got a bit better in the past couple years). — nonconfrontational consensus even in the face of obvious horrors. While I believe people should generally be free to govern themselves, that is predicated on allowing individuals to flee (although a receiving country would need to voluntarily accept them). I’d advocate for letting sane Dutch who don’t want to live in that kind of place resettle in the US.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's jeugd in het gewelddadige Somalië, Saudi-Arabië, Ethiopië en Kenia, werd beheerst door drie onwrikbare waarden: het geloof, de traditie en de familie-eer. Heen en weer geslingerd tussen de aantrekkingskracht van de zuivere islam en haar vrijheidsdrang, koos zij na haar uithuwelijking voor haar vrijheid.
In Mijn vrijheid vertelt Ayaan over haar jeugd met haar strenge grootmoeder, haar opstandige zusje en haar afwezige vader. En over Nederland: het asielzoekerscentrum, haar studiejaren in Leiden, de ziekte en dood van haar zusje, de vriendschappen, haar ervaringen als tolk, haar intrede in de politiek en de merkwaardige beslissing van de minister van Vreemdelingenzaken en Integratie om haar Nederlanderschap ongeldig te verklaren.

Extraordinary story by a young woman who was born in Somalia, grew up Muslim, lived in Somalia, Kenya, and Saudi Arabia, and who eventually escaped to Holland to avoid an arranged marriage she did not want. It would have been amazing enough for a woman raised to be submissive to choose her own freedom over the cultural expectations of her family, especially given that she knew her choice meant the possibility of losing her entire family and clan.

But she went further. In Holland, which welcomed refugees and respected their differences, she observed the founding of Muslim schools at state expense and the acceptance of practices that included mistreatment of women. She raised her voice to object to the blind acceptance of these practices in the name of diversity. She even went so far as to point out problems in the Islam religion, which is forbidden in the Quran.

How did this come about? How does a woman, raised traditionally, find a different voice? Ali takes us on her journey from early childhood into adulthood, showing us the influences along the way. Some influences led her to wear a long, heavy cape-like garment that covered everything except her face, and to pray fervently five times a day, even though such prayer is not required of women in Islam. Other influences had her wondering, questioning.

It is interesting that, while raised a so-called fundamentalist Muslim, she kept her mind open. She hewed to the faith yet when certain aspects were questioned she stopped to think about them. Also interesting is that her sister Haweya naturally tended to rebel against her parents' teaching. Haweya mocked their mother's expectations and did not relent even when beaten badly for her refusals. She saw early that men had privileges denied women, that although taught that men and women are equal in Islam, they really aren't.

Ali must have been influenced greatly by her younger sister. For years she sought another way through her religion but eventually had to find her way out of it.

Memoirs telling of heroic deeds can be difficult to write without coming across as saintly or even pompous. Ali escapes this trap by writing honestly and openly, without false modesty. The message is all-important here, and the story is a means to that end. By taking this journey with her we come to understand her anger and drive and her willingness to take on a formidable opponent. Required reading! ( )
