Life is not cheap in the women’s detainee camps for Islamic State-affiliated families in northeastern Syria. It costs around $500 a month for a family of four to survive (to buy food and other basic necessities), and being smuggled out is even more expensive—around $15,000. But detained women consistently manage to get the funds to survive and sometimes even to escape. So how are women getting that money? I tried to answer that very question. For almost a year, I monitored more than 30 Islamic State online fundraiser campaigns and interviewed more than 20 Islamic State-affiliated women currently in camps. The answers were ultimately mixed. Some women are receiving financial support from extended families who often risk being imprisoned them.

The phrase “telecommuting” was first coined in the early 1970s by a NASA employee named Jack Nilles. Nilles claimed telecommuting could offset traffic congestion, promote resource conservation, and be a major convenience for those so engaged. In addition to the societal and environmental benefits, CEOs of major companies said it increased productivity and offered greater flexibility for workers, as workplaces across the country adopted it as an option.

Many parents were forced to become educators for the first time in their lives.
