FOR A BAR ASSOCIATION FOCUS ON PEACE

14 Sep

Filiz Kerestecioglu, is now one of the lawyers, who has become a candidate for the chief of Istanbul Bar Association. The section of Istanbul, which belongs to the Union of Turkish Bar Associations, is one of the most influential.

For Filiz Kerestecioglu and also for the women in Istanbul it is a positive sign, because the new candidate is feminist and supports women rights. Her main word is “Peace”, which she uses in different contexts all over Turkey. She also initated some discussions about the patriarchy. Kerestecioglu  commented her candidation: “I am the candidate, because I want justice for everyone!”
