Why would a girl from Denver join ISIS, an extremist movement known for its mistreatment of women? Why would an Iraqi girl strap on a suicide vest? What does Islam say about violence?

? These are the questions that started counterterrorism expert Farhana Qazi on a journey around the globe searching for answers. Qazi, the first American Muslim woman to join the Counterterrorism Center, has a unique perspective on what drives girls and women to violent extremism. This evening she will discuss her new book Invisible Martyrs: Inside the Secret World of Female Islamic Radicals and the insights she drew from her personal journey into Islam and her counterterrorism work. The book will be available for sale and signing.
