Writer/activist Ayaan Hirshi Ali made a rare public appearance to accept the 2008 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for her biography Infidel.Â Ali, who has been deeply critical of Islam, especially its treatment of women,Â is under threat of death by her former co-religionists and has lived in seclusion for the last few years, only going out in public with armed guards.
The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards “recognizes books that have made important contributions to our understanding of racism and our appreciation of the rich diversity of human cultures.”
For more about the award, visit Anisfield-Wolf.org.
To make a contribution to Ms. Ali’s security, visit the Ayaan Hirshi Ali Security Trust.
