Publisher's Summary

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Infidel meets The Handmaid's Tale.

Since September 11, 2001, the Western world has been preoccupied with Islam and its role in terrorism. Yet, public debate about the faith is polarized. One camp praises "the religion of peace", while the other claims all Muslims are terrorists. Canadian human rights activist Yasmine Mohammed believes both sides are dangerously wrong.

In Unveiled: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam, Yasmine speaks her truth as a woman born in the Western world yet raised in a fundamentalist Islamic home. Despite being a first-generation Canadian, she never felt at home in the West. And even though she attended Islamic schools and wore the hijab since age nine, Yasmine never fit in with her Muslim family, either. With one foot in each world, Yasmine is far enough removed from both to see them objectively, yet close enough to see them honestly.

Part Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Infidel, part The Handmaid's Tale, Yasmine's memoir takes listeners into a world few Westerners are privy to. As a college educator for over 15 years, Yasmine's goal is to unveil the truth. Is FGM Islamic or cultural? Is the hijab forced or a choice? Is ISIS a representation of "true" Islam or a radical corruption? And why is there so much conflicting information? Like most insular communities, the Islamic world has both an "outside voice" and an "inside voice". It's all but impossible for bystanders to get a straight answer.

Without telling anyone what to believe, Unveiled navigates the rhetoric and guides truth-seekers through media narratives, political correctness, and outright lies while encouraging listeners to come to their own conclusions.

Truly revealing

I was led to Yasmine through Dave Rubin's interview with her.. As a fellow Canadian, her story is an ice pick to my heart. She is resilient beyond belief and her courage is a light shining on the TRUE racism of the west.
We need to do better.

Eye opening and thought provoking!

An amazingly scary, frustrating and anger provoking story. I found chapters in this story replaying in my sleep, or whenever my mind wandered. All I can say is it was powerful.

I'm not crying. You're crying.

Yasmines story (told by Yasmine herself) is a heartbreaking "must hear".

Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up.

Eye opening !

This is a book that I highly recommend that women in the western world all should read . There is so much that we are ignorant about but this book will educate and hopefully we will rise up and support these women in their fight for freedom .

Really very good

I was delighted and horrified by this book. Delighted with Yasmine and her tale of overcoming adversity and never giving up and finding her own. And horrified by what was done to her in the name of religion. It opened my eyes to the tolerance of the intolerable in my own country. To know this happened to her and she was made to go back to her abusers because their culture was different. No! I am inspired and infuriated and honoured that she has shared her story and I will share it with as many people as I can.

Powerful story

I can’t fathom how this author survived such a wretched upbringing. To hear that this is common in the Muslim world is heartbreaking. I am glad I know this now, but I also wish it couldn’t be true. Forevermore, I will look at a young women covered in cloth and wonder ... if she could speak to Ms. Mohammed, could she break free and escape the chains.
Because this book is powerfully read by the author, I hope listeners can overlook the occasional production issue and verbal stumble.

Thanks so much for sharing your story

I have thought the same as you about the refusal of liberals to criticize Islam and I had for years considered myself a liberal but something about this refusal really bothered and concerned me. As a white atheist woman I have never and still do not share my views on this because as with many other viewpoints I may have lately, there are accusations of bigotry or hate when I am only questioning or criticizing. We are moving backwards. I wish more people could read your book maybe they would understand better what critical thinking is and how important it is to women especially.

Powerful Story

Brave and heartfelt, wonderfully written story. Everyone should listen to this audiobook with an open heart and mind. If we all did that, perhaps we’d be better prepared to stand up against child abuse, violence, and misogyny, wherever it is found.
