In her newest book, "Prey", Somali-born Dutch-American activist and academic Ayaan Hirsi Ali is asking a new tough question: Is the rise of sexual assault cases in Europe correlated with the mass arrival of immigrants from Muslim-majority countries?

As a refugee herself, Hirsi Ali knows first-hand the struggles of integration and assimilation that are necessary in immigrating to a new nation.

Rather than restricting immigration, Hirsi Ali is calling for Europeans to reform their broken system that allows young men to bring sexual violence and marginalization of women from the Muslim world into Europe.

Join Hirsi Ali and journalist Bari Weiss for a hard-hitting conversation about her research in "Prey" and her hope for a new future that protects and advances the rights of women around the world.
