The YPJ are the female counterpart to the male YPG, i.e the Kurdish militias who have been fighting IS since 2014. Both the YPJ/YPG are organised along Anarchist-feminist lines, a revolutionary upgrade from the stale, boring Marxist-Leninist cul-de-sac embraced by much of the previous Kurdish resistance to local oppression. A world away from privileged Western virtue-signalling-via-social-media, the YPJ are attempting to banish centuries of moribund traditional misogyny in their cantons of Rojava (N.Syria), whilst eradicating the Islamic fascism of IS/ISIS
