Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

 

This article elaborates on Turkey’s progress in areas such as the increase in girls’ school enrolment rates and the drop of infant mortality rates, as well as efforts in the area of domestic violence. The Minister points out the centrality of women in driving change and development, as well as the importance of having a range of actors – such as women’s organizations, the private sector, and universities- involved in the transformation, to ensure that positive legal changes actually function efficiently in real life. The Minister also recognizes that women’s employment and participation in local politics is lagging behind, despite egalitarian laws.
