"Memoir of an activist who’s taken up arms against Islamic State and gender inequality"

And yet for all the contradictions, there is something rather magnificent about this 25-year-old, one-woman killing machine with a $1 million bounty on her head. First of all, ever since hightailing it to fight IS terrorists in Syria once the Arab Spring erupted in 2011, she has dedicated much of her youth to combating one of the most contemptible ideologies in the world — and paid a high personal price.
