Islamic Feminism : Where's the feminist outrage over ISIS's savage treatment of women?

Why would any woman who lives in a free society in the West choose to live under ISIS’s barbaric tyranny? Doesn’t she know that Syrian and Iraqi women (Muslims, Christians, Yazidis, Kurds) are desperate to flee the region, that they fear being captured, forcibly married, forcibly converted to Islam—or tortured as sex slaves?
I ask these questions because the Washington Post is currently running an in-depth look at “Life in the ‘Islamic State.’” Part two of the multi-part series focuses on women.  The report is chilling and difficult to read.
The Post’s series reminds us that not all women are treated the same way under the men in charge of ISIS. -- There are wives and then there are literally sex slaves.
