Gender Equality and Turkey's 2023 Goals

29.07.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This article provides an overview of Turkey’s recent developments in combating violence against women, as well as in gender equality in education, labour force participation, and politics. It presents a set of suggestions related to legislation and implementation for each topic addressed. It also argues that, as important as legislation is for improving women’s rights, on its own it is not sufficient for achieving gender equality. Gender equality requires Turkey’s transformation from a male-oriented mentality towards an egalitarian mentality.
