The term "Women's Jihad" became popular and had a great impact on the formation of the concept of ISIS women in the domestic and international media, in a way that the terror group exerted the power of seduction and attraction on them, and used several ways to attract the media to serve its goals. Undoubtedly, this played a key role for women joining ISIS ranks. The terror group used the latest and most advanced media technologies, and had an exceptional and organized media for its propaganda in different languages in written, audio and visual formats. The purpose of this research is to clarify the role of these tools and their ways to influence people, especially women. After reviewing previous researches, it was found that there are few studies in this field i.e. the ISIS methods in recruiting women.
The current research is based on the purposefulness and the method applied is analytical and semiotic. The data collection was based the information the ISIS had provide itself in the virtual space. The statistical population included interviews of people lived under ISIS and media experts. It also included ISIS information that was spread in the form of videos, photos, on social media. The results showed that the dark face of ISIS in relation to women is based on the brazen sexual exploitation and how they are turned into goods as they bought and sold on the one hand, and became companions of terrorists in their beds under the so-called “Jihad al-Nikah”.
