    Merhaba women of Amargi,

    I hope you are all well and revelling in the glow of your March 8 celebrations! I look forward to reading about your March 8 activities here soon.

    So, I am leaving a comment as a feminist sister in the states – one married to a Turkish man as well. As a former facilitator of a feminist collective, I read about Amargi with great interest. I used much of your material for a lecture to my students on women’s issues in Turkey – and sent my students to your site to learn more. Most were “shocked” to learn that feminism was alive and well in Turkey – so I am doing my part to try to open my students minds to the long history you have built upon.

    Finally, I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. This is an informal social networking award for new (or new-er) bloggers, awarded by other bloggers, in order to bring people to your site. May it bring some folks your way!!!

    In solidarity,
