Women and Football in Turkey

23.05.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

Football was considered a "the sport of men" for a long time in Turkey. This led women to be alienated from this field, excluding a number of women football players, spectators, managers, referees and football coaches — who might have taken place in both women football and football in Turkey — from reaching the desired level. In this study, determinations are made on women's rights, social gender discrimination and women football in Turkey. Their interaction with one another is investigated and the results are introduced.
