Syrian Women Tear Off Black Garbs While Fleeing ISIS

"Freedom portrait."
That's how local photojournalist Jack Shahine described images of woman fleeing Islamic State-controlled areas of northern Syria, while tearing off the black garbs required by the extremist group, as they fled.
The women pulled off the all-black covering as they reached Kurdish-controlled areas in northern Syria, according to Shahine, revealing colorful dresses underneath.
The photos were first posted by Kobani-based Shahine, who has been documenting Syrians crossing from areas captured by ISIS militants into Turkish- and Kurdish-controlled areas, in recent weeks. He tweeted that the photos were taken by a friend who also spoke to the women. Shahine said of the two who were removing their black garbs, one is Arabic, and the other is Kurdish.
