The 29-year-old presenter spends two weeks with an all-female Yazidi battalion in northern Iraq near the Syrian border as they prepare to join the male soldiers fighting Isis. This handful of young women (most are teenagers) survived when Isis attacked Sinjar in 2014, massacring thousands and holding around 3,000 women and girls as sex slaves.
In the training camp dormitory there are moments when they giggle and behave like kids on a school trip, but then they describe the appalling atrocities they have witnessed. It’s horrific, but the story of the Yazidi genocide is one that needs wider reporting. First shown on BBC3.
Stacey Dooley meets the all-female Yazidi battalion who are fuelled to take revenge against the so-called Islamic State. As the battle to take Mosul from ISIS advances in Northern Iraq, the reporter finds these young women's lives have been transformed by a desire to avenge loved ones murdered by ISIS.
