This is what TRUE feminism is! These women are no longer in the clutches of ISIS. They will no longer be told to cover up. They will no longer be looked at as objects. They are taking their freedom back!
By Amanda Prestigiacomo
In a video posted by Rudaw English, women liberated from ISIS-controlled areas are seen celebrating their freedom, taking off their veils and burning them in defiance of their once-oppressive rulers.
The women, with sheer joy on their faces, remove their veils, once mandated by their rulers, and begin to set them aflame. The women are also seen smoking cigarettes and cheering over their newfound freedom.
Freed children are also shown eating fruit and embracing one another with dance and song.
