Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born American activist, writer and feminist. She is known for her extensive work fighting for the rights of Islamic women. Her story is one of perseverance and success against all odds. She grew up in a strict Islamic family and experienced the abuse she so passionately advocates against first-hand. She was a victim of genital mutilation. What makes Ali's stance against Islam so unique is she is the first woman from an Islamic country to publicly denounce and criticize ills related to Islam. Ali gave up her career in Dutch politics to come to the United States, where she produced 3 autobiographies. She also opened a foundation, named after her, that has helped countless Islamic women escape the abuse handed down by their families. Ali continues to periodically write opinion pieces for national newspapers to further the agenda of her foundation.
She married British historian and public commentator Niall Ferguson in 2011. She has a son named Thomas.
She attended Leiden University and went on to become a fellow at the Wiardi Beckman Foundation.
She converted from Islam to atheism, becoming very loudly against the religion for its purported mistreatment of women and she is the founder of the women's rights organisation the AHA Foundation.
Both she and Fazil Say are intellectuals who converted from Islam to atheism.
