My first artifact is this article from Al Jazeera (Found here) illustrates that the government is worthy opponent to ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The Kurdish Regional Government has established provinces that are autonomous. They also have one of the few forces that ISIS can not push around. The people in Kurdistan have there own economy, even if it’s struggling like most the middle east. The second artifact (Found here) shows that Kurdish forces from Iraq entered Syria to fight ISIS. Kurdish forces are also very accepting of both genders. This has helped create more of an acceptance, and has shown popularity. This shows that equality in genders have stimulated the Kurdish government.
