Watch Documentary About Women Warriors Fighting Daesh

Fear Us Women is a documentary film produced by Ryot concerning the female soldiers fighting Daesh in the Middle East. Many of these women are Yezidi, members of a Middle Eastern people following an ancient non-Abrahamic faith that Aleister Crowley came to (mistakenly)believe were a survival of the “original religion” of Sumer that Thelema was, in some senses, a revival of. Consider Pagans by Muslim extremists, the Yezidi are considered fair game for literal enslavement with Yezidi women being earmarked for sex slavery. When liberated, many of these women choose to enlist in the armed struggle against Daesh. The production company’s site states:

“Fear Us Women is the story of a Canadian civilian, Hanna Bohman, who has spent the last three years as a volunteer battling ISIS and liberating women in Syria. Motivated to fight, Hanna joins an all-female Kurdish army, the YPJ, which embraces the ISIS belief that militants killed by women go to Hell. The film follows Hanna as she is smuggled into Syria, trained to be a sniper and thrust into combat on the front line with ISIS. She and her comrades liberate ISIS sex slaves, many whom join the fight to seek revenge. Hanna’s harrowing journey reveals a revolution bigger than the fight against ISIS: a fight for equality and women’s liberation in the Middle East. As her status as a former model spreads to the enemy, Hanna becomes a wanted target. She keeps a last bullet for her suicide if capture is imminent. Fear Us Women is a most intimate look inside the brave female soldiers fighting one of the most dangerous wars on the planet. The film’s title comes from an Arabic tattoo on Hanna’s arm: ‘Fear us women o’ enemies of humanity, for you who die by our hand will burn in Hell forever.’”
