Minister of Health heavily criticizes Dutch Muslim society

In a lecture Minister of Public Health Edith Schippers (VVD) heavily criticized a variety of phenomena in parts of the Dutch Muslim society. She praised Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who chose her own way in opposition to all conventions. Schippers said that Hirsi Ali faced great difficulties. Yet she opposed the suppression of women in Muslim culture, forced marriages, female circumcision, and the patriarchate. Schippers also criticized the lukewarm support for Hirsi Ali by Dutch feminists.
