Um Aws, 25, a former resident of al-Raqqa, Syria, who used to be a member of the ISIS al-Khansaa Brigade poses for a photo after an interview with the New York Times, in Urfa, southern Turkey, Monday, Sept. 21, 2015. Um Aws' first husband was also in ISIS, and when he died in a suicide operation she was forced to marry another fighter. She and two other women escaped from ISIS, leaving Syria in early 2014. Living in exile in Turkey, they still fear the long arm of ISIS, and only speak to their families sporadically, if at all.
