Dr. Phyllis Chesler, who qualifies legally to testify in court on the risks women face in Muslim families, is interviewed in the video below by Michael Coren. They discuss France’s legal dust-up by an aggressive Muslima, who insists on her right to hide her identity in public.
Dymphna is very familiar with Dr. Chesler’s work, and supplied me with this background information:
Dr. Chesler’s essay on the subject is at the Middle East Quarterly, here.
In her youth Dr. Chesler was married briefly to a Muslim, a fellow college student in the U.S. who took her home to the old country and quickly abandoned the mask: from a modern Western-educated man to a 7th century tribal husband in no time flat. She has written a compelling account of her escape from the nightmare and return to civilization. She has devoted her professional life to attempting to explain to Western feminists the abyss between Islam and feminism. For this Herculean task she was roundly shunned by the tunnel-vision fems.
Our readers would do well to begin with her fascinating, refurbished Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman. A scholarly, prescient account of that phenomenon now known widely as “mean girls”.
Mr. Coren plans to have Dr. Chesler back on his program when this court case in France tests the law passed against Muslima exhibitionism.
