A Timeline of ISIS Killings Due to Gender Expression

This is a timeline of documented incidences of women killed by ISIS because of their gender expression, including defying ISIS ascribed roles, behaviors, and dress codes. 

The incidents are a compilation of executions and killings reported by several independent sources. MADRE cannot verify the credibility of the executions detailed in this timeline. While MADRE has made every effort to document gender-based killing that ISIS militants have carried out during this timeframe, this timeline should not be considered comprehensive. View a more detailed version of this timeline and the list of independent sources here.
