Meet The Women Fighting Against Terrorists
Women are joining together to fight extremism - both in the West and in the Middle East
What would you do if your brother, sister, son or daughter packed their bags one day and left the house without so much as a goodbye? What would you do if you found out that they’d crossed Europe, and headed to Syria?
What would you do if they became a terrorist?
For Saliha Ben Ali, she doesn’t have to imagine. She founded SAVE Belgium after her son Sabri left their home in Brussels and died as a ‘martyr’ in Syria. Her husband received a phone call one day, saying he had died and was given no explanation of what happened.
To this day she doesn’t know how he was killed. She went to the Syrian border to try and find answers. Now, speaking at Women In The World conference in London, she explains why she set up a charity to help other women in her situation. ‘To me it was important to do something so I could grieve.’
Giving women a safe place to talk about how extremism has affected them, Saliha’s programme also teaches them how to see the signs of extremism in their family members.
Dr Edit Schlaffer, founder and executive director of SAVE Belgium explains that they launched a study of over 1000 women affected by ISIS and asked who they trusted to talk to, to speak out against extremists.
