The Yezidi religion is older than Christianity. Most people have never even heard of them. They believe in a God, but not the devil, and worship an angel in the form of a peacock named Meleke Taus for his disobedience.

In 2014, viewed as devil worshippers by ISIS a horrible genozide was launched against the Yezidi people and especially the women.  Since the first women and children’s escape from IS slavery, their fate has become a horror note in the glossy world media. But how can life continue after such horror?

Despite all their painful experiences, these four women have an undying will to live, to fight for a future. WOMEN OF THE SUN is a story of hope.
