"Recruitment is boosted by the deployment of women soldiers on the front line, often in all-female units. "The jihadists don't like fighting women, because if they're killed by a female, they think they won't go to heaven," said one female fighter. "They are striking fear into the hearts of the Jihadist thugs who believe if they are killed by a woman in battle they will not reach heaven," writes the WSJ. http://www.citizenwarrior.com/2014/08/kurdish-women-soldiers-hunting-down.html"
