    The Same Drugs: Ayaan Hirsi Ali on modern feminism and her new book, Prey

    The Same Drugs: Ayaan Hirsi Ali on modern feminism and her new book, Prey

    In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Born in Somalia, Ayaan was subjected to FGM (female genital mutilation) as a child, then forced marriage, at which point she fled to Holland and sought political asylum. There, she worked her way up from being a janitor to serving as an elected member of the Dutch parliament, where she campaigned to raise awareness of violence against women, honor killings and FGM. In 2004, Theo van Gogh, the director of Ayaan's short film, "Submission," about the oppression of women under Islam, was murdered by an Islamic extremist. The assassin left a death threat for Ayaan pinned to Van Gogh's chest. Her new book, "Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the Erosion of Women’s  Rights," addresses the undermining of women’s rights in Europe in the wake of mass migration.

    The Same Drugs: Jonathan Kay on rape, due process, and the Steven Galloway case

    In 2015, acclaimed Canadian novelist and head of the University of British Columbia's the creative writing program, Steven Galloway, was accused of sexual assault.

Galloway is now suing about two dozen people connected to the allegations against him. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Jonathan Kay — journalist, former editor-in-chief of The Walrus, former editor and columnist at The National Post, and current Canadian editor at Quillette — about the case, the consequences, and the likely outcome.
