  • Female jihad squad demand equality with men in militant video

    Newsweek - 04/10/2015

    Max Abrahms, professor of political science at Northeastern University and member at Council on Foreign Relations, says the video demonstrates the desire of women within conservative Muslim societies to prove that they have a contribution to make.

    “What I got out of the video, is that this is an effort for women to assert themselves and to see there’s a role for them beyond staying at home, caring for children, praying, that they are physically fit and active and make an important contribution to the cause,” he says.
