This excerpt is taken from the DHS and FBI’s joint homeland security assessment, “Female Suicide Bombers Threat”

DHS and the FBI assess that female suicide bombers may have an advantage over their male counterparts in accessing targets. The means to conduct a suicide attack vary widely, but a key element in maximizing the lethality of a suicide bombing is the bomber’s ability to get close to the target. Female suicide bombers may carry explosives devices in a backpack, briefcase, or purse, or hidden in an article of clothing worn close to the body, such as a vest, belt, long socks, or jacket. They also have carried explosives in prosthetic devices that mimic the look of a pregnant woman.
