Article about Gender Equality in Turkey

27 Dec

In this article by Meltem Müftüler-Baç, professor at Sabanci University in Istanbul, you can read more about the situation of women in Turkey and legislation processes regarding gender equality.

Abstract:

“This note reviews gender equality in Turkey with a focus on the existing legislation and programs. The issue of gender equality in Turkey is particularly important for Turkey’s adoption of EU norms and acquis. The main challenges in this respect are violence against women, equal opportunities at the work place, paid and unpaid labour, hidden forms of discrimination and access to political decision-making and representation.”
