Types of Violence - Turkey

Violence against Women in Turkey. A Nationwide Survey

20.10.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This report comes from a large survey (available in Turkish) that analyses how violence against women, notably domestic violence, is defined and seen in Turkey. It also addresses the methods and strategies implemented by the State and NGOs to fight against domestic violence, raise awareness among the population and provide assistance to women who are victims of violence. To prepare the survey, the authors interviewed 150 activists representing 50 women’s organisations in 27 towns in the country. Moreover, they asked 1,800 married women or who had been married living in 56 Turkish provinces to give their points of view and share their experiences in relation to domestic violence.
