“This is the booklet I’ve been ready for—only it’s richer, deeper, and extra fascinating than i'll have imagined. A street Unforeseen is a massive contribution to our knowing of feminism and Islam, of ladies and the realm, and offers me clean desire for change.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, writer of Nickel and Dimed and Living With a Wild God

In war-torn northern Syria, a democratic society—based on secularism, ethnic inclusiveness, and gender equality—has gained major victories opposed to the Islamic kingdom, or Daesh, with ladies at the entrance strains as fierce warriors and leaders.

A highway Unforeseen recounts the dramatic, underreported historical past of the Rojava Kurds, whose all-women defense force was once instrumental within the perilous mountaintop rescue of tens of millions of civilians besieged in Iraq. as much as that time, the Islamic kingdom had appeared invincible. but those ladies helped vanquish them, bringing the 1st 1/2 the refugees to safeguard inside of twenty-four hours.

Who are the progressive ladies of Rojava and what classes will we examine from their heroic tale? How does their political philosophy vary from that of Iraqi Kurdistan, the Islamic kingdom, and Turkey? and may the politics of the twenty-first century be formed by means of the competition among those political models?
