She is not a soldier, nor a rebel, nor an enemy, nor a combatant – she is first and foremost female, nothing but a body.

She must be reduced because the threat she embodies is multiple: she is a woman, and also a Kurd, and a fighter, a rebel. In the logic of a hierarchical patriarchal system she must first be reduced to nothing but a woman, and then reduced to even less than a woman – a dishonored woman, a naked one.
