Rich Lowry has a great primer for those who aren't fully up to speed on who Ayaan is and what she stands for. Read it all, but here is a taste; Ayaan Hirsi Ali should be the perfect feminist hero.
Viewed from a certain level of abstraction, it is hard to imagine one person who fits the role on so many levels: She left her religion and became a scourge of its repressive practices.
