A Message from Phyllis Chesler
by Phyllis Chesler
I think you will be interested in the video of the speech about anti-Semitism which I gave in Toronto last month (2/16/11). This was part of an excellent, possibly historic, conference: "When Middle East Politics Invade Campuses" which was organized by Advocates for Civil Liberties.
On International Woman's Day, March 8, 2011 I addressed the Gender Fairness Committee of the NYC Supreme Court judges and spoke about the courtroom affadavits I have been writing on behalf of Muslim girls and women who are seeking asylum in America to avoid being honor killed. A longer version of that speech was published on that same day at FOX News.
FOX allowed Canada's National Post to reprint a smaller version of their piece which, in turn led to Ayaan Hirsi Ali's discussion of it on her blog—which then led to a piece about my honor killing work which was posted at the Independent Women's Forum.
