The three teenage girls left the country in a suspected bid to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State extremist group. London - The notion that young women are travelling to Syria solely to become “jihadi brides” is simplistic and hinders efforts to prevent other girls from being radicalised, new research suggests. Young women are joining the so-called Islamic State group for many reasons, including anger over the perceived persecution of Muslims and the wish to belong to a sisterhood with similar beliefs, according to a report released on Thursday by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College London.
