Although I admire Beyoncé, I aspire to be like Chimamanda Adichie. Every feminist should aspire to be like her

Kassem, 11, shares a tender moment with his Aunt Fatima. Kassem has severe disabilities that include limited use of his legs, no bladder control, difficulty hearing, and an inability to speak.
The exclusion of children with physical, mental and intellectual disabilities from public schools in Jordan and Lebanon, including Syrian refugees, is a serious issue, despite policies to promote inclusion. A recent assessment of 120 refugees in Lebanon—half of whom had disabilities, the others being caregivers—did not find a single child enrolled in school or other educational activities. Only a small number of those disabled children attended school in Syria. Recent reports from Jordan’s Za’atari camp suggest that children with disabilities generally do not go to school.

Meet the Kurdish Women Fighting ISIS in Syria

Photo essay

Syria/US (2014)

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal:

“The jihadists don’t like fighting women, because if they’re killed by a female, they think they won’t go to heaven,” said one female [Kurdish] fighter.

Unfortunately, the truth of this is doubtful. But that shouldn’t diminish the fact that 7,000 volunteers have joined the Women’s Protection Unit (YPJ) to resist ISIS.

On the other hand, PKK, the Turkey-based, pro-Kurdish group they’re affiliated with is classified as a terrorist group by the US State Department. 

Girl power is very ethically complicated.
