I am researching a paper on women suicide bombers and if anyone has anything to offer - viewpoint, fact, argument, statistics, personal experience, narratives, anything at all then I would be most welcome to have them.
I am doing my research from the point of view that women do it for the same reasons as men do and not from any specific gendered point of view. Any arguments for and against will both be welcome!

Hi Adi,

I am doing a paper for one of my classes along similar lines as you. I just started researching and I know it's going to be difficult to find good information on this source. If you could share some of the information you've recieved with me I would be very gratefull. If by then I have some good sources i'll be more than willing to share them with you.

There is also the recently-published book by Barbara Victor called "Army of Roses: Inside the world of Palestinian women Suicide bombers". It's shallow, simplistic, imbalanced and sensationalist, and worryingly it's pretty much the only thing out there. You've got to read the bad with the good though right?
