TPQ has consistently covered gender rights both in print articles and through roundtable discussions. The concept of gender equality most recently captured domestic and international attention when President Erdoğan released a controversial statement claiming that gender equality is against nature and that “equivalency” between men and women should be sought after instead. In her article in TPQ’s Winter 2015 issue, Assoc. Prof. Sare Aydın Yılmaz, founding President of the Women and Democracy Association (KADEM), provides a conceptual framework in support of this position on the basis that in advocating for equality, feminist approaches overlook the differences between the two sexes, impose fractures in female identity, and attempt to masculinize women. Yılmaz’s article precipitated two critical responses that have just been uploaded onto TPQ’s online Debates section. In tandem with the TPQ panel that took place in Van this spring, TPQ hopes to foster a constructive exchange of perspectives on the “equality” and “justice” concepts with regard to women’s rights, and continue the spirit of lively dialogue.
