Independent and cutting-edge analysis on Turkey and its neighborhood
This article provides an overview of Turkey’s recent developments in combating violence against women, as well as in gender equality in education, labor force participation, and politics.

Gender equality requires Turkey’s transformation from a male-oriented mentality towards an egalitarian mentality.
