Turkey - Discussions on Closing Parliamentary Women-Men Equal Opportunities Commission in Turkey

[Ankara, 4 december 2013] The last couple of days have been very chaotic for the agenda of the Turkish women’s movement as there are rumours about closing the Parliamentary Women-Men Equal Opportunities Commission in Turkey.

Government representatives are denying and refusing these claims. But women’s organisations are alert and very concerned. Up to now, the women organisation are aksing the related ministers to give a formal explanation on the issue.

We will observe the situation closely and we will keep you posted on the state of play.
