How, and to what extent, are women represented within Dabiq and Inspire magazines?
As we know from a wealth of mass media reporting, women are increasingly the focus of recruiters from pro-jihadist networks. Much of this reporting focuses on the Islamic State, in particular, as representing a new threat because of the nature of some of its female empowerment messages and imagery. However, we know very little about these messages and the extent to which they cohere with, or differ from, ideological views of women found within this and other pro-jihadist groups.
