As I explored the main problems Turkish women face, I realized that these concerns are not unique to Turkey. Gender inequality, and lack of education, economic freedom, and sexual and bodily rights afflict many women in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America. In the film, Nur, the activist says, “Democracy is impossible without women being empowered.” My goal with “Voices Unveiled” is to communicate to the audience the link between democracy and gender rights in the world.
TPF along with the American Turkish Society will be holding a screening of “Voices Unveiled: Turkish Women Who Dare” on Wednesday, October 6th. RSVP online.
