Meet the Kurdish women fighters battling Islamic State

Meet the Kurdish women fighters battling Islamic State

Women fighters at a Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) base on Mount Sinjar in northwest Iraq, just like their male counterparts, have to be ready for action at any time.

Smoke from the front line, marking their battle against Islamic State, which launched an assault on northern Iraq last summer, is visible from the base.

Many of the women have cut links with their families back home; the fighters come from all corners of the Kurdish region.
