    Online Webinar - Women’s Rights and the Struggle in Turkey 

    6:00 pmThe webinar will be streamed on the SPOT website in Turkish with English subtitles.

    Economic and social inequality, and violence against women and girls continues to rise in Turkey, but women refuse to bow to the AKP’s regressive policies and attacks on women’s rights.

    In preparation for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls, SPOT, together with Day-Mer Women, have organised an online webinar which will provide a closer inspection of gender inequality and violence against women in Turkey.

    Join us on Tuesday 17th November at 18:00 to find out more about what life under the pandemic has been like for women in Turkey, why the Istanbul Convention has become a major political battleground, and what more needs to be done to build international solidarity and empower women in Turkey.
