The notion of women in terrorism pushed its way to the forefront of the American mindset on December 2, 2015, when Tashfeen Malik and her husband, Syed Farook, opened fire at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, killing 14 and injuring 22.
For this presentation we’ll talk to the author of a new report on the subject of female jihadists and discuss their motivations, methods and the lessons we can learn from their cases.
