Since the goal always seems to be total domination, why should we not assume that shooting random women for dress code violations isn't just one in  a series of move to finally get that control?  Terror--always the favorite weapon of these Islamists.

Militant Islamists in Somalia have shot dead a Muslim woman for refusing to wear a veil, her relatives say.
The nomadic woman was killed outside her hut near the southern Somali town of Hosingow by gunmen belonging to the al-Shabab group, they added.
The militants had ordered her to put on a veil, and then killed her after returning and finding she was still not wearing one, the relatives said.
An al-Shabab spokesman denied the group had killed the woman.
Al-Shabab does not fully control the area where she was living, he added.
The woman's relatives, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisals, told the BBC she was killed at about 07:30 (04:30 GMT).
Al-Shabab, which controls much of southern and central Somalia, imposes strict rules of behaviour, including dress codes for men and women.
