How Kurdish women soldiers are confronting ISIS on the front lines

PBS Newshour
First broadcast on PBS Newshour. Behind the frontlines in Iraq with the all-female unit within the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK. The women are on the front lines of a fierce battle against the Islamic State. Some of them are widows; their husbands were killed in operations against the Turkish military. Should America decide to back the PKK, it would mean upsetting the USA's longtime ally, Turkey.
