Dutch Parliamentarian Ayaan Hirsi Ali wrote the screenplay for Theo van Gogh’s film, Submission, about the abuse of Muslim women. Van Gogh was murdered by extremists who objected to the film and Hirsi Ali has lived under the threat of death since. In her new book, The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam, she calls for an Islamic Enlightenment. Also: Poets gather to craft a "New New York City Epic."
