BARQ Center For Consulting & Future Studies held a Forum on “Isis women … the centrality of women in the age of terrorism” in which Rifka Ra’d, MA in philosophy and a researcher in war philosophy/ political philosophy lectured on Sunday February 4th at 3 pm in Barq Center in Fatih.
The forum addressed the sudden and peculiar presence of the Arab woman, or the woman living in the Arab world, who suffers from the patriarchal culture, from motherhood and staying indoors for home chores. These led her to be involved in the idea of appearing and equality and to demand liberation and to discuss ideas towards a new concept of women in addition to the discussion of the future of this existence and how it appeared and the followed policy that contributed to making women appear in public in this way.
A short film about women participation in Jihadist operations in Isis “Daesh” was displayed during the forum. The effective dialogue and the cross-fertilization of ideas among the attendance contributed to enriching the forum in all aspects and that showed the multiplicity of cultural and social diversity.
