Depicting Female Suicide Bombers
What makes her tick? No one is born a terrorist, but why do women desire to become suicide bombers? Depicting Female Suicide Bombers: Understanding the Radicalization Process presents a comprehensive study of Islamic females who have chosen an unconventional path labeled “terrorism” to overcome internal grief. This book presents an alternative view of suicide terrorism, focusing on the underlying issues and self-struggle that Islamic women experience against cultural and religious stigmas, gender bias, and postpartum depression. Their allegiance, the Achilles’ heel, which is to end their grief, enables them to successfully complete their mission.
