Women terrorists making strides

Military operations for ETA, the Basque separatist group, have suprisingly fallen into female hands

by

Women have climbed the terrorist ranks to reach positions of authority in ETA, the Basque separatist group. Two thirtysomething women are reportedly leading military operations for the organization, which has fought an often-violent campaign for independence. More than 800 people have been killed and thousands wounded in the half century-long fight.  Alas for feminists, the rise of the women in ETA has less to do with their abilities and more to do with their male counterparts being arrested by authorities in Spain and France.
