The ‘Feisty’ Baroness & the Islamists
It was a
great honor for Canada to welcome Baroness Caroline Cox of the UK House of
Lords last week. Cox has increasingly become involved in endeavors to be a
"voice for the voiceless" in the UK, where she has been working on behalf of
Muslim women suffering from gender discrimination inherent in the application
of sharia law.
Much to the surprise and chagrin of Islamists, and despite their pushback, Baroness Cox's appearances in Toronto and Ottawa were a huge success, especially in relation to women and youth. In Toronto at a seminal event, she stood and spoke alongside courageous women from the Muslim world and was awarded a medal of courage.
